Love him or hate him, it’s hard to argue with Kim Dotcom’s dedication and charisma. Since the illegal raid on his New Zealand mansion in 2012, Dotcom has become a leading advocate for online privacy, launching a new encrypted cloud storage service Mega last year, which grew to over 5 million users in November.
On Sunday, VICE released a mini-documentary on Dotcom, giving a glimpse into his mansion in Auckland.
“Everyone should be really passionate about their privacy and solutions like Mega, and that’s why I’m doing it,” Dotcom says in an interview with Vice. “I don’t agree with these intrusions into our lives. Who is still trusting any US tech company? Who is still putting anything on any Google site or Microsoft or Apple without thinking that the US government has access to that?”
On the same day, CBS News’ program 60 Minutes aired Hollywood’s Villain: Kim Dotcom.
