Kim Dotcom explains why he wanted his appeal livestreamed.

New Zealand-based internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom has been granted his request for his extradition appeal hearing to be livestreamed over the internet.

Dotcom is accused of being responsible for widespread copyright infringement on Megaupload, the file-sharing site he founded. The US wants New Zealand to hand him over, along with three of his former co-workers.

From his New Zealand mansion, Mr Dotcom spoke to BBC's North America technology reporter Dave Lee.
