In United States, the MPPA and the RIAA have been working hard to close down any and every website that it thinks could possibly be infringing on copyrights. At times, RIAA that has sued people that had tenuous ties to pirating at best. The drawn out legal campaign run by RIAA has led many to feel the recording association is as bad as the Pirates.

The United States government is sending a man from New Zealand over copyright infringement and several other charges named Kim Dotcom, the owner of the file sharing website Megaupload.com. It has been 45 days since New Zealand law enforcement raided the Dotcom mansion in New Zealand and carted the 38-year-old off to jail. Three other associates that helped operate the website are also named in the suit. Those three men are Mathias Ortmann, Bran van der Kolk and Finn Batato.

Crown Law is the New Zealand legal firm handling the case for the US. They had 45 days to turn in extradition papers after the arrests were made. Crown Law reports that extradition papers were filed today. The extradition hearing is set for August. Dotcom and three other men stand accused of international copyright law breaches with a value of $500 million. There are charged with conspiring to commit money laundering, copyright infringement, and aiding and abetting copyright infringement.
