Founder of Megaupload Kim Dotcom, who was arrested on January 20, 2012 after indictments were filed in the United States against him on criminal copyright infringement charges, released a new song called "Mr. President" in which he clearly targets the U.S. government.
Dotcom recently said that Megaupload was offered up as a political favor as he felt that the U.S. government went after him as a way to win favor with those in the entertainment industry.
In the song, the founder of Megaupload, encourages people to fight for online freedom.
"The war for the Internet has begun, Hollywood is in control of politics,The Government is killing innovation, Don't let them get away with that," the song says.
Dotcom goes on to say "Let's get together, lets all unite, or they will do whatever they like."
The German-Finnish business man then directly addresses Barack Obama "What about free speech, Mr. President?What happened to change, Mr. President? Are you pleading the fifth, Mr. President? Are you going to fix this, Mr. President?"
The four minute-long video, posted on his Youtube Channel, features footage of Jimmy Carter, Martin Luther King, and anti-piracy law activists.
Dotcom has created a new website whose aim is to expose the corruption in Washington. On his site he challenges supporters of US president Barack Obama asking them if they would still vote for Obama if Megaupload isn’t brought back up by November 1.
