submitted a Reuters article
about the arrest of Dmitri Sklyarov
. Cryptome has collected the press release and criminal complaint
filed against Sklyarov by the United States, at the urging of Adobe Corporation. The complaint specifically mentions the ROT-13 "encryption"
used by at least one "protected ebook" company, so the jokes made about the DMCA before are now true: crack ROT-13, go to jail. Sklyarov is currently imprisoned without bail. We've received a note that another Russian developer who was at the conference with Sklyarov has posted more information about the arrest
- can someone provide a translation in the comments?
