60 Minutes Video: Hollywood's Villain - Kim Dotcom

60 Minutes Video: Hollywood's Villain - Kim Dotcom

The following script is from "Hollywood's Villain" which aired on Jan. 5, 2014. Bob Simon is the correspondent. David Levine and Michael Gavshon, producers.

Hollywood’s always had its bad guys. Think the Joker or Darth Vader. But their biggest villain is a man who calls himself Kim Dotcom. You won't see him on the big screen but, until recently, he ran a service that made it possible for you to see almost any movie you wanted to for next to nothing. Before his website, Megaupload, was shut down, federal authorities say it allowed people to access not only copyrighted films, but copyrighted music, books and video games. They claim he cost the entertainment industry more than $500 million in lost revenue. Hollywood considered him one of the worst pirates ever. The U.S. has filed an indictment against Kim Dotcom for copyright infringement, racketeering and money laundering and requested his extradition from New Zealand, where he lives. That was two years ago, but Kim Dotcom hasn't gone anywhere.
