Kim Dotcom’s Amazingly Bad Free Speech Music Video

“What About Free Speech, Mr. President?”

While one might well agree with some of Kim Dotcom‘s sentiments, the song itself is so bad it’s almost (but not quite) good:

  1. Bahahaha, this song was recorded in Auckland, New Zealand after our courts refused to extradite Kim due to the illegal and unwarranted house raid the police (at the command of the FBI) conducted in their attempt to detain him.

    “We have met the enemy, and he is the US” – Court Judge David Harvey.

    • My friend Ian lives in Auckland! 
      Love this guy, love freedom, love the internet (as it is now).

      • Are you from NZ? If not, Aucklanders AKA ‘Jaffas’ tend to be less than favourable in the eyes of the rest of the country lol

        I agree, Dotcom in my eyes is a good dude, a rich bastard who’s donated many a dime to charties and donated a large sum to the rebuild of one of our largest cities knocked over in an earthquake the year before last, so I’m more than happy for him to rip large corps. off and stick his middle finger up to the USA, because we aren’t letting him go.

    I honestly think it’s a fucking great song and video. It’s somewhat powerful, too.

    I’m not sure I agree with defending the frequent distribution of copyrighted materials on the Internet as “innovation.” Megaupload may have been host for a lot of legal content that deserves a means of distribution, but I’m not sure that the Federal government is interested in shutting it down over video game mods and freeware. The claim that anyone is out to “stifle innovation” seems like a defense that skirts the issue entirely.

    There is already a strong movement by copyright experts, lawyers, and judges to allow more freedom for artistic and innovative use of copyrighted materials online. An interesting read:

      I kind of take back a bit of what I said, or rather, am re-thinking it. There is a substantially powerful interview with DotCom here: see now that he is defending himself as an innovator for coming up with the service in the first place, which makes sense. I’m inclined to think that as a service provider, he isn’t liable for the actions of users – regardless of whether or not he suspected that much of the content on his servers was copyrighted material.He makes a great point about the absurdity of trying to monitor that much activity, just as ISPs have been granted immunity for the very same reasons and have not been forced to pro-actively police their own.

       There are literally a crap ton of vaporware mods for games that are now gone for good.

  3. I like this song. I’ve heard this guy talk and he’s articulate, smart and funny. Nothing like what the media portrayed him as.  

  4. Great song, wrong person to be asking to fix the problem though. Our illegitimate president wants nothing but the total destruction of the constitution and the collapse of this once great nation.

      Are you an idiot? You’re an idiot.

      • Why is he an idiot?  New Zealand has a Prime Minister, not a President, so naturally he must have thought the song is referring to Obama as “Mr President.”  

  5. I was wondering what Corky from “Life Goes On” was up to these days.

  6. I refuse to watch a so-called music video made by this thief. Those that are following him are just so many sheep.

       So you’re perfectly fine with being treated like an international terrorist for downloading a movie off the internet.

    Apologies, Mr. Dotcom, but, being a New Zealander and all, you are not entitled to American free speech: because you are not a multinational corporation.

    • He’s actually German… But you’re right,  Dotcom (or any NZer) isn’t entitled to Americas version of free speech, we don’t have a Bill of Rights or Constitution or anything of the sort…
