Nonsense.  People found innocent by courts are not put on probation,
nor are they subject to plea bargins.  Clearly the court accepted the 
admitions as proof of guilt.... and you know what, I dare you to find 
under the DMCA as it's being interpreted how the court is wrong. 
If the court found the DMCA unconstitutional, or Dmitry not subject to 
it's jurisdictions, he would have just walked...period

He didn't.  He's on probation and has to contact the Court regularly.

>> When one adds that fact there is no admission of guilt
