Why travel to US?
The article states, 'and travel to the US to sign an undertaking not to infringe copyright laws again'.
So why can't the US Embassy 'pop round' to his UK address with the papers to sign?
This could be dangerous in that once in the USA, they can do what they want negating any agreement made.
There is also the cost of the travel when patently unnecessary.

The US, as usual, says jump and the UK government asks how high? Just who does the UK government represent? It seems the interests of the US are taken ahead of UK citizens! If I was this kid, I'd be very wary of a ruse of somekind by the US authorities who break treaties, laws and agreements wholesale!
