Note that although copyrights and patents are often registered in the originators' names, under work-for-hire regulations the developers' employers generally own and profit from the copyrighted works. To argue the case, Sklyarov's attorney has several probable lines of defense.
First, Sklyarov is studying electronic security issues as part of his Ph. The defense may very well ask whether or not it's against the law for anyone to engage in "legitimate" encryption research.
In a similar circumstance, Edward Felton, a professor affiliated with Princeton University, withdrew a paper analyzing digital music encoding when the Recording Industry Association of America threatened a lawsuit.
The importance of cryptology as a recognized discipline has been demonstrated several times in U. Brad Templeton, chairman of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, points out that "Cryptanalists [sic] like Alan Turing are now widely regarded as among the greatest contributors to the defeat of Nazi Germany Incidentally, Sklyarov is not the only programmer to study e-book encryption programs.
In late August, an anonymous programmer reported that he was able to decrypt the Microsoft Reader eBook program, but understandably he has not released his software. The problem with this defense, however, is that ElcomSoft was selling the circumvention program, rather than publicizing research about the security problems of encrypted e-books. Copyright Act.
Examples of such rights include making a backup archival copy in case the original e-book is damaged, loaning an e-book to a friend or colleague, allowing the visually handicapped to load e-books into speech synthesizers, and permitting readers to store e-books in other programs so they can be accessed with any software or after program upgrades. Fair-Use, First-Sale Rights Since his employer, not Sklyarov, was directly selling the program, it's inconceivable that Sklyarov deliberately created it for personal profit motives.
From most accounts, his primary reason for attending the DEF CON convention seems to be the presentation of legitimate research on how easily encrypted e-book programs can be broken. Some industry experts have even suggested that Adobe Systems should be grateful to Sklyarov for finding the software vulnerabilities.
DEF CON has held nine annual conferences, attended by respected security experts, cryptographers, and computer programmers employed by universities, corporations, and the government. Despite the prestige of many of the attendees, there are those who claim that meetings of the organization encourage a "dangerous" society of hackers. I've frequently criticized the continuing threat from publishers that will ultimately end fair-use and first-sale doctrine rights. In part, Pat Schroeder, president and CEO of AAP, said: It's only common sense to expect that, if the public wants desirable books to be available online and through other digital media like the Adobe Reader, the authors and publishers who have the legal rights to commercially exploit such works in the global digital marketplace must have reasonable assurances that the market value of their works can be protected from the extraordinary risks of illegal reproduction and distribution that are made possible by the capabilities of digital media.
