U.S. Prosecutors File For Extradition of Kim Dotcom

U.S. federal prosecutors have filed papers seeking the extradition of Kim Dotcom. Are we taking any bets? If this guy goes the Julian Assange route, it could take forever before he is shipped here. eek!

New Zealand justice officials say papers were filed Friday in Auckland's North Shore District Court. The court is not releasing the papers at this time. U.S. prosecutors accuse the four men of breaching copyright by facilitating millions of illegal downloads through their website, enriching themselves at the expense of movie makers and songwriters. They are accused of a number of offenses including racketeering, which carries a maximum prison sentence of 20 years.
