    Probably the most pointless and uninformative post I have read. It should be noted that most laws are international (Under the Digital Rights Act), and you can be brought against a court in whatever country. Point is, you can't break the law nor should you try.

    Was your post really worth bumping this old post too?

    International laws are more symbolic - they have no power. Russia is a good example. They just broke the Vienna Convention - but do they care?

    Point is, the USA for example could ask for him to be exiled, and his government might argee. (In order to keep relations between the countries strong).
