The interview airs again tonight at 7:30pm on Prime.

60 Minutes in the US this week screened a story on Kim Dotcom and the Mega Upload extradition and copyright infringement case. Not sure when it will screen here on Prime but CBS have made it available to view outside of America.

mega-logoHollywood is on the offensive against Kim Dotcom over Mega popping up in search results.

Warner Bros. and NBC Universal have asked Google to remove the Mega homepage from its search results due to their belief that it is hosting copyrighted content on its servers. The Mega homepage does not link to any files at all.

Google is yet to comply with the requests, with Mega remaining in their search results.
