Fifth arrest made in Megaupload case

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) – A U.S. official has confirmed a fifth person has been arrested in the Megaupload file-sharing case.

The U.S. Justice Department official in Washington, speaking on condition of anonymity because the case is still pending, said Dutch police have arrested Andrus Nomm, 32, a citizen of Estonia and a resident of both Turkey and Estonia.

Police last week arrested Kim Dotcom and three Megaupload employees in New Zealand on U.S. accusations they facilitated millions of illegal downloads of films, music and other content, costing copyright holders at least $ 500 million in lost revenue.
