Chesterfield Lad to be Extradited to US?
« on: January 12, 2012, 07:40:29 PM »
Chesterfield lad, Richard O’Dwyer, is to appear in court tomorrow (Friday) to fight his extradition to the US.

His crime? He hasn't committed any in the UK...

But the Yank nutters have decided they didn't like that he linked to sites they considered illegal and want him to be extradited to the US...

As I said in my blog last June when it first kicked off, "If Richard had done something wrong, he should be charged and tried in the UK."
 
As Richard did not reproduce or distribute copyrighted material, he merely linked to other sites that did, it would appear that he has committed no crime. In fact, in a similar case in 2007, Cheltenham computer engineer David Rock was arrested for running a website that offered links to sites containing pirated films and TV shows – the case was dismissed.

Good luck to him and Ya Boo Sucks to the great Satan.

With you on this one Pete.
If, as we are lead to believe, he only supplied links, to sites that hosted copyright media files.
He's done nothing wrong.
The yanks just hate the fact his website/s was/were popular in the UK  ???

Don't Google do a similiar thing >:(
I type in 'film download', they give me links to US websites with downloads.

Exactly! If he stands trial in the US, Google should be stood next to him in the dock.

For a country that invades, rapes, murders, tortures, anywhere on the planet at will (or at least that has oil) I think the US is a criminal state, in fact, when you look into the CIA's record worldwide over the last 70 years it's easy to understand 911 happening.

But Richard actually dared to link to a website - Shock Horror!

I've got the address of a website that links to various sites that offers free streaming of sports events. Premier league football, Italian Spanish, the nfl, basketball etc etc you name it its on there.
The site works perfectly for 51 weeks of the year. Then the week before the Superbowl you get a message saying the site has been seized by US Homeland Security.
1 day after the Superbowl they are back with a slightly different URL.
So it's evidently ok to break the law till it might cost the US TV Networks money!!!

I wonder if the UK will give equal consideration to extraditing The Duchess of York to Turkey? And I mean the UK government, not the UK royal family!

Bang on JR.
Like I said in my earlier post. If we're being told the truth.
Extradition, on what grounds ?

Seems the biggest crime in USA is to be "Unamerican" which of course the authorities interpret whatever way suits them.

This is why SOPA needs to be stopped before it's a reality. Because that will give US authorities way too
much power outside the borders. Real power that no one can do a dang thing about.

There is something fundamentally wrong with the society these days. Internet and it's financial impact and
high value makes the US act globally like we all lived on American soil. And yes, it's wrong.
They're acting like it was an act of terror or a war crime.

Did you guys know that in some places today the punishment for copyright infringement is longer than it
is for rape?

So what are the 'Good Old USofA' going to do with him 'if' they find him guilty of whatever it is they are accusing him of doing in the first place ?
Jail him, and pay for his up-keep.
Fine him, he's a student for godsake.

K'in ridiculous  :-[

Did the last Labour Gov really sign this extradition treaty. Blair, Jack Straw, Slacker ?

Quote
It doesn't have to be a crime in the UK.

In fact, under the terms of the extradition treaty we signed - which we have ratified, but the USA chose not to! - any British person, committing any act in the UK, which would have been illegal if they'd done it in the USA, can be extradited and jailed. That includes, for example, an 18 year old boy sleeping with his 17 year old girlfriend, who could get ten years for statutory rape since the US age of consent is 18.

They don't actually go after those, but they could if they chose to, and legally there is nothing whatsoever that we could do about it.
