Law.com: "Renowned San Francisco defense attorney John
Keker has agreed to represent indicted Russian
computer programmer Dmitry Sklyarov on a pro

Keker's decision to represent Sklyarov, believed to
be one of the first to be criminally charged under
the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, could put an
end to speculation that a plea deal is in the works."
