The Megaupload founder is suing the New Zealand government for $4.8 million, claiming it illegally spied on him in advance of a raid on his house, says Wired.
The MegaUpload founder tweets that he's looking for partners and fund managers to kick off funding for privacy-focused startups.
The country's attorney general had sought to have the agency excluded from the MegaUpload founder's lawsuit.
New Zealand's prime minister issues an apology to MegaUpload founder Kim DotCom after it was determined that the government illegally spied on DotCom.
