Legal "Three weeks ago the 23-year-old UK-based administrator of a TV show and movie links site was arrested by police. The site, referred to only as TVShack, could be one of three domains of which two are already controlled by the US government after their seizure as part of Operation in Our Sites. Following his detention in the UK's largest prison, the admin is now fighting his extradition to the U.S. with the help of Gary McKinnon's lawyer." His site only linked; it did not host. The most damning point is that he was found not guilty under UK law. So, does this mean The Netherlands can request extradition of, say, Rick Santorum for his blatant anti-homosexual remarks, which are illegal under Dutch law? That would be fun.

The article mentions that this guy ran some of the 'movies.cc' domains. That being the case, *IF* this is the nimrod that's responsible for the ton of'.cc' comment spam on Youtube, then yeah... bring him over here, and I'll beat his ass personally.

BTW: Can they get away with extraditing him here? Apparently, they can:

Aha, apparently this was a deal struck specifically with the UK ;)

Guess the porn industry is still safe then.

I believe Russia, as a rule, doesn't extradite its citizens, ever. I guess only that should keep the porn going, in worst case scenarios...
