Movie Studios Want to Copy Megaupload’s Servers

It would seem that Hollywood is getting more impatient as this case just keeps dragging on and on. Now, I'm no fan of Kim Dotcom and I think he is going to lose on all fronts, but I have no idea why Hollywood thinks it's entitled to copies of Megaupload's servers. Any legal experts in the house that can explain this one to me?

Hollywood's major movie studios are protesting a request from Megaupload's legal team to put their civil lawsuit on hold for another six months. The movie studios will only agree to the request if they can get copies of the Megaupload servers stored at Cogent, something the defunct cloud-hosting service fiercely objects to.
