Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom is busy these days.
In addition to trying to avoid extradition to the U.S. on charges of massive copyright infringement, Dotcom is hatching a new political party in New Zealand, where he lives, the Washington Post reports .
Dotcom said he’s confident he’ll stay in New Zealand, saying copyright infringement is not a sufficient reason to force his extradition.
Dotcom said he’s still in the planning stages.
“I have a handful of people who have already committed to be part of it, but we’re still in the early stages,” he told the Post about getting others involved in his new party, which does not yet have a name.
