LONDON, England (AFP) — A British student who created a website allowing people to watch films and TV shows for free can be extradited to the US to answer copyright infringement allegations, a court ruled Friday.

Richard O'Dwyer, 23, allegedly earned thousands of pounds (dollars) through advertising on the TVShack website before it was closed down by US authorities.

He faces jail if found guilty of the charges, which were brought after a crackdown by the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

O'Dwyer's lawyer Ben Cooper indicated during the hearing at Westminster Magistrate's Court in London that he would appeal.
