Advocates collect funds for Russian programmer

AllSeer, an organization fighting the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), plans to hold a fund-raiser for Dmitry Sklyarov, a 26-year-old Russian programmer who was indicted Tuesday on charges of violating the DMCA. Sklyarov was arrested in July for allegedly publishing a program about technology he created that can be used to crack Adobe Systems' e-books. AllSeer said the event, which will be held in San Francisco, will feature speakers including Lawrence Lessig, a Stanford University law professor and a member of the Electronic Frontier Foundation who wrote "Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace," and Richard Stallman, president of the Free Software Foundation. AllSeer said the event is free, but the organization will be accepting donations for Sklyarov's Legal Defense Fund.
