    Police forced to return seized material to Kim Dotcom

    "A judge has ordered the police to sift through all digital material taken illegally from Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom and to return anything irrelevant to their investigation- at their own cost.

    Clones of hard-drives already sent to the United States must also be returned if they contain personal information, while any further copies must be destroyed, the court ruled.

    Dotcom and his co-accused will then receive clones of devices deemed to be relevant to the case.

    The judgement, made by chief High Court justice Helen Winkelmann today, says the seizure of devices without sorting them first was unlawful, and that the police have no right to keep irrelevant material."

    Agreed that this is an uphill battle but good news nonetheless.
