Dotcom's hard sell

Kim Dotcom may like to paint himself as a victim but his extravagance and excess makes it hard to sympathise with the Megaupload founder.

Kim Dotcom has consistently claimed that he has been painted as a target by the US government because of his excess lifestyle and hacker past and when you look at today’s infographic it’s easy to see why.

Dotcom promotes himself as a rich rebel but it's hard to feel for someone who drives around in luxury sports cars with licence plates “EVIL” or or lives in a mansion worth $24 million.

The Megaupload founder may claim that he is being hung out to dry as an example to other cyber locker sites. But each of his pleas for public support has been followed by a story about his excess.

Today it was reported that Dotcom asked a New Zealand court for a living allowance of over $140,000 per month to sustain him while waiting for his extradition trial in August.

Here's an infographic from CouponCode4U looks at some more facts about Kim Dotcom and his wealth.  If his extravagance has done one thing for him, it’s guaranteed that whatever happens he will receive media coverage.
