The scale of the crime determines who is involved. The FBI isn't mobilizing a special OPS task force to go after some random small time coca paste producer in Peru and trying to extradite him. When it's a kingping like Pablo Escobar, the Gov't is sending everyone in after him.Why is the FBI involved in what at worst should by a civil lawsuit? Why was the site shut down like this when again, it was a matter of copyright infringement (if even actually through the fault of the site's owners), not some sort of major crime? Why are these people wanted to be extradited to the USA over such a thing when that'd be in violation of their rights? This whole mess stinks of corporate trash.
The scale of Dotcom's copyright infringements were at a Pablo Escobar level. There are few people in the world anyone can name who oversaw a site with more illegal transfers than him. The fact that he drew so much attention to himself didn't help either. His own stupidity got him there. Trying to start up a new site when you haven't even gotten legally cleared of the first mess is simply further proof this guy is a retard.
