Kim has acheived several victories in the ongoing case, including an apology from the New Zealand Prime Minister John Key for the New Zealand Government Communications Security Bureau illegally spying on him. MegaUpload was since relaunched as Mega.co.nz exactly a year later.

Kim's latest venture is an anti-censorship network called MegaNet, which will seek equity via a crowd-funding campaign set to launch in January 2016.
