Sklyarov arrest follow-up

Author: JT Smith

Slashdot offers an update on the situation of Russian programmer Dmitri Sklyarov, who was arrested in Las Vegas this week after making a presentation at Def Con: "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. Skylarov is currently imprisoned without
bail."
