    I saw this and thought my fellow BHW friends would appreciate it.

    It's a really good and thought out video.

    Megaupload boss Kim Dotcom has launched an online song attacking US President Barack Obama and urging supporters not to vote for the US leader, who he accuses of trampling on Internet freedom.

    In a song titled "Mr President" released on YouTube, the self-styled cyber freedom fighter, who allegedly masterminded a massive online piracy business, compares himself to US civil rights campaigner Martin Luther King.

    Dotcom, free on bail in New Zealand awaiting a US attempt to extradite him for alleged copyright theft, raps "don't vote for those who would take us back in time".

    Enjoy the share!

    I think the guy is an idiot, but that's just my opinion...

    I think this comment under the youtube video sums it up best:

    "
    1) Guy makes millions of dollars selling advertisements and fast-access memberships for (predominantly) the download of others' intellectual property.
    2) Guy gets busted by overstepping US Government.
    3) Guy reframes it using imagery of a civil rights hero, Occupy Wallstreet protesters, and anti-IP-criminalization protesters.


    I don't like how the US government is playing the case, but Kim's narcissism makes me hate him more."

    He did what he did, but that doesn't negate the message. He's not advocating his own innocence with this song. He's merely spreading the anti-censorship message. Only a disinfo agent would hate on that.
