Independence day for Britain

Today I would like to draw your attention to this case, of UK national Richard O'Dwyer who committed the vile offence of linking to copyright infringing data.  Linking, you may remember from an earlier post, is exactly the same as pointing.

Not only did the bastard point, but he did it in the UK, is not a U.S. citizen, has hardly been to America, and now he's being extradited to the U.S.A to face felonious charges of pointing at the wrong damn thing.

UK, we own you.  Where are your damn balls?  Seriously?  For this?

Of course, if non-commercial pointing were considered fair use, this travesty of justice would not be happening.
