[xmca] FW: Extradiction to USA and privatisation of knowledge/ internet

Dear xmca

I sent the email below to our faculty earlier and thought that xmca would be interested in this: Jimmy Wales has called for us (front page of the Guardian today/yesterday) to sign a petition against the extradition of a young student to the US to face charges with up to 10 years imprisonment - who committed no illegal act in UK jurisdiction (i.e. running a website that provided information tousers about where they might obtin free views of video)...

Not only are Brits outraged at this one-way US-imperialist extradition law but it also raises issues of 'who owns knowledge/ the internet'?
