I think every country needs to re-work the copyright laws. And have people actually understand what is wrong from right. The kid may not know what he was doing was illegal. Did they give him warnings to stop? Were the shows on the site American and not British? That's two of the questions I'm wondering. If the US had nothing to do with the copyrighted materials, than they have no business melding into this, and this should be left for the UK government to decide.
