New Zealand judge orders the police to return any irrelevant data to Kim Dotcom and destroy any cloned hard drives containing personal information. Since January 2012, Kim Dotcom has been no stranger to courts. He has been embroiled in legal battles even before his notorious one-click hosting site, Megaupload, was forced to shut down. Since that time, Kim Dotcom has successfully started up another file-storage service Mega and won several lawsuits against him for copyright infringement. This latest victory is actually a follow up to the same judgement that High Court justice Helen Winkelmann passed last year that the FBI refused to follow. According to the judgement, the warrant that the FBI used to seize Kim Dotcom’s digital materials and hard drives was invalid and unlawful.
