GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – Kim Dotcom, who founded Megaupload, which was shut down by US authorities in 2012, is one step closer to being extradited from New Zealand to the US. A New Zealand higher court overturned an earlier court’s decision that agreed with his demands to have access to extensive court documents when his extradition hearing takes place in August 2013. Dotcom, a German national, is wanted by US authorities along with three other people on charges of massive copyright fraud. US Department of Justice charges, January 2012
