    You figure he probably envisioned such a scenario and might have an escape plan; speed boat, jet.. some James Bond type stuff.

    James Bond - payattentionahr ;)

    I see he has to wear an electronic bracelet as part of his bail conditions.

    The US Government will probably have a satellite hovering over his house watching every move.

    "Defence lawyers for Kim Dotcom say he does not pose a flight risk. One of their arguments, at 6"7" and weighing over 280 pounds how could Dotcom possibly flee undetected." NBC

    LMAO.

    Funniest shit I have heard this week.

    Not to condone what he is accused of but I'm always happy to see someone sticking it to the American government.

    I love it when the "little bloke" has a win - not that Dotcom is "little" in any manner, shape or form. :D

    You'd think with all the money the US Government threw at this (via their friendly allies NZ), that their legal representatives and the coppers would get it right first time.

    Can you imagine what would happen to someone who didn't have resources to employ a high powered legal team? They'd be languishing in the slammer - or already back in the USA.
