Friday, 13 January, 2012 (All day)

STUDENT Richard O'Dwyer can be extradited to the US over copyright infringement allegations related to his web site TV Shack, a UK court has ruled.

O'Dwyer created the TV Shack web site and is the subject of an order for his extradition to the US, much like Gary McKinnon.

Support for O'Dwyer had been building on Twitter, with Pirate Party leader Loz Kaye saying after the news, "Devastated. Protecting copyright has come to mean accepting unacceptable human collateral like Richard O'Dwyer."
