Megaupload Paid Pirates Thousands In Rewards

During Kim Dotcom's extradition hearing, the prosecution claims that Megaupload knowingly paid out tons of money to pirates.

In a rewards program that lasted five years, Megaupload paid out more than $3m to users who uploaded content the site. One of those was paid more than $50,000, despite having more than 1,200 takedown notices filed against his account, the U.S. claims.
