U.S. frees Russian programmer

Author: JT Smith

NewsFactor Network writes: "The U.S. Attorney's office announced Thursday that it is freeing Russian computer programmer Dmitry Sklyarov in exchange for his cooperation in testifying against his employer, Moscow-based software development company ElComSoft. Sklyarov will be allowed to return to Russia pending the government's trial against ElComSoft. All charges against him will be dropped as long as he "testifies truthfully" at trial and does not violate any laws -- including copyright laws -- over the next year."
