Kim Dotcom, founder of the file sharing site Megaupload, is appearing at North Shore District Court this morning for a bail hearing along with three other men involved in the case.

Dotcom, along with chief marketing officer Finn Batato, Mathias Ortmann, chief technical officer, Ortmann and Bram van der Kolk, programmer, were arrested on Friday by New Zealand Police who executed provisional arrest warrants requested by the United States Department of Justice.

All four defendants are expected to apply for bail pending an extradition hearing. Lawyers representing the US government have opposed bail for all four defendants.
