Megaupload server seizures finally run into mega-due-process
When Megaupload's servers were grabbed by the government earlier this year, plenty of non-infringing content was taken along with pirated files. Kyle Goodwin, an Ohio man who makes his living taping high-school sports events, stepped forward to be the poster-boy for users who became "collateral damage" when they lost access to their legitimate files stored on Megaupload.
Now, it looks like Goodwin is going to get his day in court sooner than later, three months after a June ruling by US District judge to defer a decision on whether Megaupload users would get their data back. The judge overseeing the case has decided to hold a hearing to discuss the details on how Goodwin might get his files back. Goodwin's lawyers at EFF said the hearing will cover "where [the data] is, what happened when the government denied him access to it, and whether and how he can get it back."
