While the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom is making headlines by flying out to visit the US President, there is another case in the news which may better explain the particular relationship the United Kingdom has with the US – at least, more clearly than a cursory flight on Air Force One to watch a basketball game.


Richard O’Dwyer, the 23-year-old student from Sheffield and the founder of TVShark service, is accused of copyright infringement on a large scale. Today he had his extradition approved by the Home Secretary Theresa May. During the interview to the local media, O’Dwyer’s mother, Julia, warned that this extradition approval would set a dangerous precedent for more British citizens to risk finding themselves on a plane to the United States to face trial.

Julia said that her son’s life, including his studies, work opportunities, and financial security, was being disrupted, for no-one knows how long, just because the British government failed to introduce the much needed changes to the extradition law. She called it “being sold down the river by the UK government”. Earlier, Julia said in the interview that if the US authorities could come for Richard, they can come for anyone else.

Although the servers of O’Dwyer’s TVShark were located outside the United States, the entertainment industry still pushed for harsh sentencing. Richard’s online service didn’t actually host any illegal material – it only linked to other sites.

O’Dwyer’s case is similar to that of Gary McKinnon, suffering from Asperger’s syndrome. McKinnon is also under threat of extradition to the US. Although his defense team claimed that their client was just looking for evidence of extraterrestrial life, an American ambassador still claimed that McKinnon faced extradition to the US.

No avatarIt's well nigh time the UK stopped sucking Obama's b*ll ocks!

As for Home Secretary Theresa May she's about as much sense as a sack of potatoes and far less use. And where is William Hague in all this, after all he's Foreign Secretary, or has he been wined and dined by too many US 'dignitaries'?

We should have law and ruling that in exceptional extradition cases involving UK citizens that each case is debated and voted on in Parliament.

MOST countries PROTECT their own citizens!

No avatarWhat another load of Crap! I feel for all UK citizens, it seems that the government is bowing down to large US corporations.
This bloke did host files and was only an indexing service? His service was not on any servers in The US, yet when the US decide they want reimbursement for so called theft(copyright infringement)They attack another non US citizen to bring them to trial under laws of another country.
unfortunately America is going to loose face to the rest of the world - they have made some very bad decisions in the last few years, there country is in recession there dollar is the lowest it has been and now the big businesses are feeling the pinch so they are pursuing these ridiculous court cases to gather money from people in other countries who in most cases have not broken any laws in either country?

So if this is the case and he was only supplying the links, then it is obvious, the YANKS should be taking Richards isp to court for ONLY supplying the links to Richard ,Cameroon your a k*** m8
