Anonymous attacked UK Prime Minister and Home Office websites yesterday night 07/04/2012.

The reason for the attack was the case of  Richard O’Dwyer.

Richard O’Dwyer is  a student who is accused in 2010 that he hosted in his  website  pirated movies and television  programmes.

Richard O’Dwyer has argued that his website  did not store copyright material itself and merely directed users to other sites, making it similar to Google.

British and American officers confiscated his equipment in November 2010 from his home in South Yorkshire.

The U.S. asks to be tried in their own territory.

In the U.S.  Richard will face imprisonment up to five years.

Richard O’Dwyer claims that the website did not violated any law of the United Kingdom.
