Richard O'Dwyer case: TVShack creator's US extradition approved

Post by Irn Bru on Tue Mar 13, 2012 7:51 pm

Another Briton extradited to face trial in the U.S.

Home Secretary Theresa May has approved the extradition to the US of a student accused of copyright infringement.

The US authorities say 23-year-old Sheffield student Richard O'Dwyer's TVShack website hosted links to pirated films and television programmes.

A spokesman said Mrs May had "carefully considered all relevant matters" before signing the order.

Mr O'Dwyer's mother Julia, from Chesterfield, said he had been "sold down the river" by the government.


This one looks dodgy to me.
