CRITICISM: Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak says the U.S. piracy case against Kim Dotcom is "hokey" and a threat to Internet innovation.
THE BACKDROP: Dotcom, the flamboyant founder of file-sharing site Megaupload, is accused by federal authorities of facilitating Internet piracy on a massive scale. Charged with racketeering and money laundering, he's fighting U.S. attempts to extradite him from New Zealand.
BACKING IT: In an interview, Wozniak said plenty of people used Megaupload for legitimate purposes before federal authorities shut it down in January.
