Do you know who is Kim Dotcom ?

Kim Dotcom  was born on 21 January 1974 in Kiel, Germany. He is also known as Kim Schmitz or Kim Tim Jim Vestor. He changed his surname to Dotcom in 2005. He is a German-Finnish Internet businessman, entrepreneur and hacker, currently residing in New Zealand. He is the founder of Megaupload, Mega and its associated websites.

Kim is know as one of the world's "largest tech entrepreneurs" as his height is around 2 metres (6 ft 7 in) and weighs over 130 kg. In 2001, his main source of income was a company called Kimvestor, which he valued at 200 million euros. He is known for spending his money on expensive cars and boats. He owns at least 18 luxury cars – including a 1959 pink Cadillac

He rose to fame in Germany in the 1990s as an alleged hacker and internet entrepreneur. He was convicted of several crimes, and received a suspended prison sentence in 1994 for computer fraud and data espionage, and another suspended prison sentence in 2003 for insider trading and embezzlement. In January 2012, the New Zealand Police placed him in custody in response to US charges of criminal copyright infringement in relation to his Megaupload website. Dotcom was accused of costing the entertainment industry $500 million through pirated content uploaded to his file-sharing site, which had 150 million registered users. Dotcom has vigorously denied the charges, and is fighting the attempt to extradite him to the United States. Despite legal action still pending over Megaupload, Dotcom launched a new project/website named "Mega" in January 2013, opened to the public exactly one year after Megaupload was shut down.

Dotcom is married. He and his wife, Mona, have five children. He became the father of twin girls (his fourth and fifth children). Check
