Submission + - Man extradited to US from AUS over copyright

bricko writes: "How did this get this far....Hew Griffiths, a 44-year-old Australian, has been extradited to the U.S. to face criminal copyright charges. Griffiths was the leader of a group named "Drink Or Die," which (again, according to the article) "cracked copy-protected software and media products and distributed them free of cost." http://volokh.com/archives/archive_2007_05_06-2007 _05_12.shtml#1178810434 Copyright is not an extraditable offense...is it, plus he did not do this in the US? http://www.theage.com.au/articles/2007/05/06/11783 90140855.html"
