This is the answer MegaUpload business developer made to a July 8, 2010 e-mail by MegaUpload CEO Kim DOTCOM entitled “attention”, which contained a link to a news article entitled “Pirate Bay and Megaupload Escape Domain Seizure by US”. This article explained how the US Government was taking action against sites making available movies and TV shows. In his e-mail,DOTCOM wrote “this is a serious threat to our business. Please look into this and see how we can protect ourselfs” (sic). He asked “Should we move our domain to another country (canada or even HK?)” (pages 44-45 of the Indictment).
