On March 9 the Home Secretary, having carefully considered all relevant matters, signed an order for Richard O’Dwyer’s extradition to the US.
Richard O’Dwyer is wanted in the US for offences related to copyright infringement connected to the TVShack.net website.
“It is alleged that between December 2007 and June 2010, Mr O’Dwyer owned and operated TVShack.net which collected and catalogued links to websites containing illegal copies of copyrighted material including films, TV programmes and music. It is claimed he earned approximately £15,000 a month from advertising on the website.
“In June 2010, the US authorities seized the domain name TVShack.net. Within one day, Mr O’Dwyer and a co-conspirator are alleged to have registered the new domain name TVShack.cc and transferred the content from TVShack.net to the new website."
