Written Statement of Kevin J. O'Connor, Chairman of the Department of Justice Task Force on Intellectual Property, at the Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing on Intellectual Property Enforcement
Date:11/7/2007

Last February, he became the first individual ever extradited for online piracy offenses as he was brought to the Eastern District of Virginia to face criminal copyright charges.
