Sklyarov still in jail

Via /., even though Adobe recanted their decision it's too late: the U.S. Attornbey's office in San Francisco gave no indication of dropping prosecution against Dmitry Sklyarov. This is akin to the convenience store robber saying "I didn't mean to kill the clerk...", remorse helps no one. Adobe could start[Wiki] to redeem themselves by funding Sklyarov's defense...

Too bad for Dmitry, but the fact of the matter is that his prosecution may actually benefit the rest of us in highlighting what a boneheaded law the DMCA is.
