Mega upload wins access to data detained in police raid

Mega upload founder Kim Dotcom has won access to facts seized throughout raids on the file storage service. The decision to grant admittance was made by the New Zealand high court which said warrants used to grab the objects were illegal. The ruling is a conquest for Mr. Dotcom who said his defence was harmed since police could see evidence he could not.
Computers, hard drives and credentials were grabbed in January 2012 during raids co-ordinated by US authorities. They accused Mega upload of making massive profits from digital piracy by helping people share movies and music unlawfully. The latest decision requires New Zealand police to comb through the proof scooped up in the raid and return any data files considered "inappropriate" to the case
