The US Supreme Court on Monday rejected MegaUpload founder Kim Dotcom's challenge to the US government's seizure of overseas assets held by the founder of the now-defunct streaming site.

The court left in place a federal appeals court ruling that the US government could seize $40 million from accounts in Hong Kong and New Zealand as part of a civil forfeiture action. Dotcom is currently fighting extradition to the US, where he faces arrest on a variety of copyright charges and money laundering charges.

Dotcom criticized the court's decision, saying it will hurt treaties the US has with other countries and its ability to arrange extraditions.
