Dotcom's return: legally naive or Mega clever?

Kim Dotcom paints his new site, Mega as being impenetrable to any legal complications. So does privacy and encryption trump copyright or is it all just talk?

He’s had his mansion raided by police, been confined to house arrest and he may be about to be extradited to the US to face copyright infringement charges.

You would think that any of these experiences - not to mention the cascade of expensive lawsuits - would be enough to force New Zealand internet tycoon Kim Dotcom into an early retirement.
