Megaupload Bail Decision Delayed, More Arrests Made

This story just gets weirder and weirder as it goes. The stuff that came out during the bail hearing is just bizarre. Who has four dozen credit cards? New Zealand gave this guy permanent residency only after he invested $10M in government bonds? Heh, this just gets better and better.

In a New Zealand court today, a judge delayed the decision to grant or deny bail to Kim Dotcom, the larger than life founder of The prosecutor said that since multi-millionaire Dotcom had multiple identities, four dozen credit cards and a history of "fleeing criminal charges" he represented a flight risk "on the extreme end of the scale". In the meantime, two other site operators were arrested in Europe.
