There is not a 23 ear old in the world who has the skills to run a website but is not intelligent enough to be able to know the legal implications of what they are doing, for one the websites are set up as linking websites in an attempt to avoid detection and punishment.

This is not about the individual. It is about British judicial sovereignty.

Is that so difficult - really?- to comprehend.

"The owner of Surfthechannel.com - a site that provided links to illegally copied TV shows and films - has been sentenced to four years in jail.

The maximum sentence that could have been given at Newcastle Crown Court would have been 10 years.

Surfthechannel.com had acted as an index of professionally made online videos - both legal and illegal - encouraging its users to send in new links and check that they worked.

However, it did not host the video files itself, but instead pointed visitors to other sites including Megavideo and China's Tudou."

Seems like O'Dwyer is getting off lightly by being extradited compared with that.

He should be on the first aircraft to the US and I hope we take all court costs out his huge profits from showing hot to steal content. He knew he was doing a crime and he now goes crying to mummy even though he is a grown man.

@stunningc,
Mr Vickerman, he of surfthechannel.com was investigated by the MPAA, same as Richard O'Dwyer.
Mr Vickerman was tried and sentenced in an english court.
Mr O'Dwyer should be afforded the same and not extradited

This man was clever enough to set up his website but stupid to then start up a new website knowing the FBI had closed down the first one.

I don't understand why, if he made over £100k, his mother is touting for contributions for £25k, presumably for legal fees?

I would extradite him.
