    TorrentFreak did a good piece on this: http://torrentfreak.com/pirating-uk-student-to-be-extradited-to-the-us-120313/

    Richard O’Dwyer, the UK-based ex-administrator of the video linking website TVShack will be extradited to the US to face copyright infringement charges. Despite public outrage Home Secretary Theresa May approved the extradition order today. The 23-year-old student has never visited United States, but now faces several years in a US prison.

    He merely linked to copyrighted material, something legal in the UK. Europe needs to grow some balls and stop laying down the evil empire. New Zealand and now the UK in, what, 2 months? This is getting ridiculous the power that the MPAA/RIAA (MAFIAA) has over sovereign countries.

    Fuck Kony. Share this on FB/Twitter/everywhere about how much a bitch Theresa May is.

    Don't see why them extraditing someone is such a shock. As for this, there could have been a backdoor deal that was made to have it happen.

    Ridiculous how they persecute people in such a harsh manner like this, when you have rapists and murders doing less time.
