    Seriously, how fucking dumb are they?

    US demands extradition of UK owner of link site
    Posted on 22 July 2011.

    23-year-old UK citizen Richard O'Dwyer is currently fending off an extradition request by United States authorities. His crime? Setting up and operating a website that offered links to free movies and TV shows.

    What makes his case special is the fact that he is not a US citizen, that the servers on which the website was hosted were not located in the US, and that under UK law, his actions might not even be illegal.

    The only slight link his operation might have had with the US is the fact that, initially, the site used a US-controlled .net domain, and this fact is used by the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency as a reason for requesting O'Dwyer to be extradited.

    If the request is granted, he could be charged by an US court with criminal copyright infringement and conspiracy and, if found guilty, could get a prison sentence of up to five years.

    On a global scale, such a decision would create a legal precedent that would have heavily affect the ongoing debate on jurisdiction over online crimes and criminals.

    "Because so many copyright owners are actually US-based companies, it would basically make US courts the world criminal courts for copyright infringement," commented Daniel Gervais, a law professor at Vanderbilt University, for ars technica.

    Corynne McSherry, EEF's Intellectual Property Director, is also of the opinion that the final decision on this matter warrants long and hard thinking and the weighing of all implications. She points out that the tables can be reversed, and that US citizens could then also be subject to extradition to other countries after unknowingly breaking those countries' copyright laws.

    Fixed that for you, "moron"!

    Here's a simple clue for YOU!

    Having just read the stupid and ignorant post from "bsnub" I find myself having to agree with you about some yanks.

    However, shouldn't generalise but "bsnub" even on a good day certainly comes across as an ignorant, illiterate, brain dead C*NT !

    "His crime? Setting up and operating a website that offered links to free movies and TV shows."

    Sounds like he was aiding people in stealing to me. He was profiting from stolen American property. Do you seriously think that is right? Answer the question.

    Read some of these posts. Eurotards calling Americans ignorant...interesting.

    It doesn't matter what it sounds like to you, your question was "it's OK for people outside the US to steal American owned data is it?" - and put simply he wasn't stealing American owned data.

    Of course it is a crime to take copyrighted material without paying for it.

    However, because I live in a country where any new DVD costs upwards of $30, I'd rather break the law and download the fucker. So sue me.

    This is just another demonstration that corporate America runs the American judicial system for its own purposes.

    Explains why no-one has ever even been charged with raking in money from knowingly selling toxic debt.

    Nah, fuck that, let's go after the "real" criminals, eh?

    Of course all Americans aren't ignorant (the majority are) but many live in complete ignorance and by that I mean they've had it so good for so long they can't accept a simple truth that the "American Dream" was and is built on a greedy and corrupt foundation of sand. Stupid or what?

    Sorted out your debt problem have you? Stupid or what?

    You whinge when you're fuel costs are a fraction of the rest of the worlds, you whinge when your taxation is raised to pay for your corrupt politicians and bankers, in fact Americans are world famous apathetic whingers apart from gluttony that is i.e. Supersize Me . Stupid or what?

    Apart from that and the fact that your country is completley bankrupt and your corrupt politicians and bankers have fucked up the world financial system what is there? Stupid or what?

    Oh I forgot..."American Pie" in the sky of course!

    No Just fucking STUPID!

    Also interesting that so many euros are so consumed with finding fault with America. You need to stop reading your news. They have filled you with a lot of bad information.

    We are all broke? Yes, a lot of people made a mistake and bought homes for more than they were worth. How about all the people who sold homes for more than they were worth? More people own their homes outright than there are people who are upside down.

    The country is broke. Yes, quite a bit of debt. Last I checked, Greece, Italy and Portugal were in Europe.

    "American Dream"? The only people I hear use that term is Brits. They seem consumed by it. Why? It's really something from the years after WW2.

    Fuel costs complaints. I agree, but only because Americans aren't used to high prices because the taxation has always been so low and lifestyles developed around cheap gas. People will adjust, I have seen it already, but it will take time.

    Calling other people stupid? There's a nice, euro tradition.

    Producer Charles Ferguson began his Academy Award acceptance speech by reminding us that three years after our worst financial meltdown "not a single financial executive has gone to jail... THE INSIDE JOB.

    Yes, that must be one of the earliest ever examples of copyright infringement.
