Megaupload User Will Get His Day in Court

Some good news for Kyle Goodwin and Megaupload users: the Court stated today that it will hold a hearing to find out the details about Mr. Goodwin's property - where it is, what happened when the government denied him access to it, and whether and how he can get it back. The Court has asked Mr. Goodwin and the government to each propose a format for the hearing, which remains unscheduled at this point.

Today's news is one more step toward getting innocent users their rightful property back - something that is long overdue. We are glad that Mr. Goodwin will finally get to make his case in court and we look forward to helping the judge fashion a procedure to make all of Megaupload's consumers whole again by granting them access to what is legally theirs.
