The Megaupload founder, who is resisting extradition from New Zealand, said he had to resort to offering the money because the deck was stacked against him in one of the largest copyright infringement cases ever brought.
“My case is unfair,” the German national tweeted. “I was declined discovery, I didn’t get my own data back, I need whistleblowers I am offering USD $5M.”
Dotcom, whose Megaupload empire was shut down in January 2012, has long argued that US authorities, aided by close ally Wellington, illegally targeted him at the behest of Hollywood studios.
