Has the IET got anything to say about the legal aspects of cloud computing where a British user's data is processed or stored (either deliberately or unintentionally) on a computer in a foreign country? If the owner of the data violates a law of that country but does not violate any British laws, and is then extradited and prosecuted under the laws of that country then is this immoral and an abuse of technology or should all British users of cloud computing have to comply with the laws of every country the UK has an extradition treaty with?

It is a problem which needs definition under Data Boundary Definition . The Cloud Service Provider's needs to have a software where an user can define that his data need not leave beyond this geographical boundary. please also refer CSA website for more info.

Extradition from the UK requires that the alleged offence is extraditable. In general, if it isn't considered an offence in the UK, then you won't be extradited for it.

The United States can issue an extradition request for whatever it wants without having to provide a shred of evidence beforehand under the 2003 Extradition Act.

1. Three people were extradited in 2006 for wire fraud involving computers on US territory.

2. Two people were extradited in 2012 under allegations of using a webserver in Connecticut for an activity that is illegal under American law despite a complete lack of evidence from the prosecutors that they are guilty.

3. An extradition request was submitted for a person that was accused of breaching American copyright law just for providing links on a website they owned to copyrighted material stored elsewhere. The extradition was later cancelled.

It is just a dilemma that desires explanation under Information Boundary Definition. The Fog up Program Provider's will need any computer software wherever the consumer could outline in which his facts does not need to keep beyond that physical boundary. you need to in addition direct CSA web page for more info.
