Talks over fate of Russian programmer

Author: JT Smith

BBC: "A Russian programmer who was arrested when he visited a hackers
conference in America last month has become a reluctant poster
child for free speech.

Dmitry Sklyarov is charged of violating a controversial law called the
Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DCMA).

His arraignment has been postponed until next week as lawyers try
to reach a settlement."
