A Polish court has opened the way for the extradition to the United States of the owner of a file-sharing website to face charges of copyright infringement, but Artem Vaulin's defense lawyer said he would appeal against the ruling.

A U.S. court indicted Vaulin, a Ukrainian, last July for copyright infringement related to the distribution of more than $1 billion worth of movies, video games, music recordings and other content.

The indictment stated that for financial gain Vaulin's peer-to-peer file-sharing website, Kickass Torrents (KAT), had distributed since 2008 copyrighted works such as last year's film "Captain America: Civil War".

Vaulin, who has been in custody in Poland since last July, denies any wrongdoing.
