According to the very well written judgement he can only be extradited if there is a proportional offence in the UK.
Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988:
“A person who infringes copyright in a work by communicating the work in public
(a) in the course of business, or
(b) otherwise than in the course of business but to such an extent as to affect prejudicially the owner of the copyright commits an offence if he knows or has reason to believe that, by doing so he is infringing copyright in that work.
I think this stinks, but it seems perfectly legal.
You're looking at it wrongly. I recently had solar power installed because - long term - it pays off.
Let's say your numbers are correct. $30k to install. $150/month saved. That's similar to my situation in the UK.
Your payback period is about 17 years (although potentially longer if you had to take out a loan to pay for them).
Most solar panels are guaranteed for 25 years (or, rather, their operating performance won't drop by more than a certain percentage per year).
So, for the remaining 8 years, you're earning $150 per month - that's $14k. That's not a terrible ROI.
However! What if there's an energy crisis? All of a sudden, you're saving $300 per month. Or, depending on where you live, you can sell your excess electricity back into the grid for a profit.
Worse case scenario, the cost of electricity plummets and you're left with an overprices UPS on your roof.
I say go for it!
I wrote about this a few weeks ago.
It works in Linux if you can get Adobe Digital Editions to run under WINE.
But the whole concept of "borrowing" a digital file is nonsense.
The system for borrowing music is run on Overdrive Media Console. Linux unfriendly - but works on Android.... Go figure.

The BBC's news is legally obliged to be impartial. You can argue how successful it has been and how much more work it needs to do. But given that the right-wing parties say it has a liberal bias and the left-wing parties say it is too conservative; I'd say it is probably doing a good job of staying neutral.
... How many Post-It Notes can I steal before I'm fired?
One? A pack? A crate?
Working overtime and not being paid is the equivalent of the company stealing your time.
Now, I'm a reasonable guy. I'll go home half an our late and not put in for overtime / TOIL. But you better believe that I'm taking some Post-Its with me.
The thing that stops me taking the Kindle is the huge upfront cost. I can buy 200 books for the price of one Kindle. Obviously, the Kindle has all sorts of advantages over regular books, but it's quite a steep cost.
I think Amazon should subsidise the books. Make the Kindle come with, say, $200 worth of vouchers redeemable in the Amazon store. Make it $100 worth of general vouchers and $100 worth of 2-for-1 deals. Anything to cut the apparent cost of the hardware.
Digital content has no intrinsic cost, so it's not much of a subsidy on their behalf.
What's odd is that Android not only allows the playing of
