British Founder of TVShack, Extradited to U.S. to Face Piracy Charges

Richard O’Dwyer, the British Founder of TVShack, Faces Extradition to Face Piracy Charges

Richard O’Dwyer, a British student who founded by the video-streaming site TVShack.net, has been ordered by a U.K. judge to be extradited to the United States to face his case of copyright infringement.

U.S. authorities claim that his site hosted links to copyrighted and pirated videos, earning up to $250,000 USD by advertising illegal content.

O’Dwyer’s mother tells BBC that this ruling is not fair.

“If Richard appears to have committed a crime in this country — then try him in this country. Instead, the home secretary wants to send him thousands of miles away and leave him languishing … in a U.S. jail…”

O’Dwyer will be extradited to the U.S. to face his charges filed against him by the American authorities, though he is a resident of the United Kingdom. He could face up to 10 years in Jail, if found guilty.

Samsung Requests Apple to Provide Samples of Upcoming iPhone and iPad

Written on May 30, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

After Apple filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Samsung last month, the latter want to make sure that it won't happen again by requesting a sample of the big fruit's upcoming devices.

After Apple filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Samsung last month, the latter’s legal team requested the Cupertino-based company to hand over next-generation versions of the iPhone and iPad by June 17, 2011. This is done to make sure that Samsung’s own future devices will not be subjected to the same lawsuit that it’s currently facing. The motion, filed last Friday at San Jose, California, asks the court to make Apple provide samples of the ‘final commercial version(s)’ of the iPhone and iPad — along with its retail packaging.

But a week before the request was filed, Apple petitioned to see the final production samples of the unreleased number of Samsung products – including Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 8.9, Galaxy S II, Droid Charge and Infuse 4G. While at that, Samsung asks that only their lawyers – and not the production team – be allowed to see the upcoming Apple devices.

Apple’s lawsuit against Samsung last month alleged the latter of copying the user interface and design features of big fruit’s devices. Samsung fired back by launching a number of patent infringement lawsuits, aiming at Apple’s products in various countries. While the two company compete, they have been close business partners. Nevertheless, the relationship has not kept Samsung and its telecommunications group from being targeted.

Apple Removes Grooveshark Out of the App Store

Written on August 17, 2010 by Japhet Writ

It's so sudden. Apple just pulled Grooveshark out of its App Store, eight days after it hits. What's with Universal Music and they're complaining about the streaming app?

Eight days after Grooveshark hits the App Store, the music streaming application was booted out due to a complaint from Universal Music Group in UK. After being rejected by Apple, they relegated to the Cydia app directory for jailbroken devices. Then, after years of tweaking its app in order to make it legal, the music stream appeared in the App Store last August 8. However, it’s no longer in the list today. Universal Music sued Grooveshark for copyright infringement, claiming that the app illegally stream songs from the record company’s pre-1972 catalog.

“This comes as an absolute surprise to us, and we are not sleeping until we figure out exactly how to fix this–and get Grooveshark for iPhone back in the App Store.” according to the Grooveshark blog.

The company already fixed a lawsuit from EMI last October, agreeing to license its catalog. Grooveshark allows users to download songs and relies on them to upload music to its catalog. It has apps for Android, Blackberry and Symbian devices for Nokia.
