Submission + - UK Student Loses Extradition Case for US Copyright (guardian.co.uk)

mathimus1863 writes: Twenty-three year-old owner of TVShack, Richard O'Dwyer, lost his most-recent fight against extradition to the US — for breaking US copyright law despite having never been in the US or operating any servers on US territory. It is not even clear that his actions were in violation of any UK laws. If extradited, he faces 10 years in jail in the US for copyright infringement. However, the case was only in district court, leaving room for O'Dwyer to appeal the decision to a higher court.
