Controversial tattoos are on the tongues of many Florida residents who are helping to pay for the cosmetic work of an accused murderer. “Jurors will not see this large swastika on John Ditullio’s neck or any of the other tattoos he’s acquired since being in jail in 2006. The judge ruled those tattoos could sway a jury’s opinion. So, the state is paying a cosmetologist $125 a day to cover them up.” (MSNBC) Ditullio is on trial for stabbing his neighbor Patricia Wells because he thought she was dating an African American man and for killing Wells’ friend Kristopher King because he was gay in 2006. The Daily Mail reports King’s mother is outraged. “‘The judge is bending over backwards for the criminal... Did somebody tie him down while he was in jail and put these tattoos on him?’” The New York Times talked to Ditullio’s lawyer Bjorn Brunvand who believes covering the tattoos is the only way Ditullio will get a fair trial. “‘There’s no doubt in my mind — without the makeup being used, there’s no way a jury could look at John and judge him fairly... It’s too frightening when you see him with the tattoos. It’s a scary picture.’” To some, it’s a question of whether the tattoos are relevant to the case and if the relevance outweighs the prejudice. “I would say that if he was charged with a hate crime--if the affiliation with Nazism is part of what he’s charged with then the jury ought to see the swastika. If he’s charged with an ordinary crime, the probably the prejudice outweighs the relevance.” The St. Petersburg Times reports some aren’t happy that it’s taxpayers’ money paying for the cosmetic work. “‘I didn't think it was right that the taxpayers should have to foot the bill for that.’” In 2006 when the crime happened, Ditullio was living with an American Nazi group. Last year, the first trial ended with a hung jury. He faces the death penalty if convicted.

“While these men may not look like pirates, they’re actually the center of a legal storm in Sweden that’s now become a major victory for the music and movie industries.” (France 24) Hello, I’m Charlotte Bellis and you’re watching newsy****. www.newsy**** Last week, operators of file-sharing Web site The Pirate Bay were sentenced to prison in a Swedish court for assisting in copyright infringement. But news that the presiding judge is a member of several pro-copyright organizations has prompted calls for a retrial. The Guardian reports the judge… “ …is not only a member of the Swedish Copyright Association but also sits on the board of the Swedish Association for the Protection of Industrial Property, an organization that lobbies for tougher copyright laws.” (The Guardian) Social Media Web site mashable**** calls the discovery an “unbelievable turn of events” … “To me there is no question that the judge was biased and should have declined to take part in the trial; a retrial seems like a very real possibility.” (Mashable****) France 24 reports on the impact of the verdict. “… for the moment it’s not going to change an awful lot in the short- term, there are still an awful lot a file sharing Web sites on the internet that users can still access but it’s a huge symbolic victory for the music industry.” (France 24) The Christian Science Monitor adds the perspective that in Sweden, The Pirate Bay has an ever-growing following. “Within three days of the ruling, the Pirate Party – which campaigns for copyright reform – gained more than 15,000 new members, doubling in size to become the country's fourth-largest political party.” (Christian Science Monitor) So do you think The Pirate Bay got a fair trial? Is it possible to properly enforce copyright law on the Internet?

BY MAURICE SCARBOROUGH You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is headed to Sweden, against his wishes. A British court ordered Assange extradited to face charges of sexual abuse. The ruling, by Judge Howard Riddle, says allegations brought against Assange by his two accusers are an extraditable offense. “Generally the European arrest warrant with countries like Sweden are accepted, and certainly that is the case, and certainly the judge felt that none of the defense arguments were valid. For example, that the state prosecutor in Sweden didn’t have the right, didn’t have the authority to issue the European arrest warrant, also he doesn’t believe there wouldn’t be a fair trial.” The verdict comes after a heated three-month legal battle, which some believe is a conspiracy to stop the whistle blower website. Assange’s lawyers fought the EU arrest warrant, which according to Deutsche Welle.... “ meant to expedite the judicial process. The requesting country does not have to present evidence and there is no place for the person being charged to argue their innocence.” Following the verdict Assange and his lawyers issued a media statement condemning the decision and the system. “It is not just about the pressure the United States brings to bear on the United Kingdom and on Sweden and on the media. It offers a hope for reform of the EU arrest warrant system. That system of rubber stamp deportation.” A writer for Death & Taxes rushes to Assange’s defense - calling the extradition decision a downright disgrace. “Judge Howard Riddle’s ruling is shameful. He is [complicit] in the first great character assassination of the 21st century ... he has attempted to fog the looking glass for a new generation of hyper-connected, clear-thinking young adults. This tactic will not work, so long as we don’t tire of Julian Assange..” Assange and his defense team have already announced they plan to appeal the decision. His lawyers are concerned extradition to Sweden will make extradition to Washington easier -- where he could face prosecution in connection to Wikileaks. But a writer for Yahoo’s The Cutline says, the Wikileaks founder should have nothing to worry about, citing a possible loophole in U.S. law. “...the United States could have a hard time … considering that the Espionage Act--an antiquated statute--would also apply to any news organization that published the secret documents, along with anyone who discussed, blogged or even tweeted information from the still-classified documents.” Assange and his lawyers have seven days to appeal the ruling or Assange will head to Sweden.
