It looks like Kim Dot Com is fighting back

(Reuters) - A New Zealand court granted Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom access on Friday to all evidence seized by police in a 2012 raid, bolstering the Internet entrepreneur's fight against extradition to the United States to face online piracy charges.

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.
but then he does this

Kim Dotcom threatens to sue Twitter, others over patent

The controversial MegaUpload founder claims he holds the patent for two-factor authentication and all he wants from the tech companies is money for his defense.

He's projecting $50 million in defense costs. That's got to be one heck of a defense team.
