This is Megaupload.com's Kim Schmitz, otherwise known as Kim Dotcom. Schmitz has been arrested on piracy charges in Auckland and his website closed down.
Dotcom is a resident of both New Zealand and Hong Kong, his NZ application approved after he invested $10 million in government bonds and made a donation to the Christchurch earthquake fund. He had previous convictions at this time, but claims German law wiped them. He is also a dual citizen of Germany and Finland.

Dotcom was one of four arrested from his rental home, the Chrisco mansion in Coatesville, this morning. Here are some snaps from the businessman's lavish life.
