    (08-28) 18:52 PDT SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) --

    In a closely watched electronic publishing case, a federal grand
    jury Tuesday indicted Russian computer programmer Dmitry Sklyarov
    and his employer on charges they broke the Digital Millennium
    Copyright Act.

    Sklyarov, 27, and ElComSoft Co. Ltd. of Moscow were charged with
    five counts of copyright violations for writing and selling a
    program that lets users of Adobe Systems' electronic-book software
    bypass copyright protections imposed by publishers.
