EFF Rejoins Protests After Meeting with US Attorney's Office

Representatives of the Electronic Frontier Foundation
(EFF) met with representatives of the U.S. Attorney's
office in San Francisco today. There was a productive
dialog, however the U.S. Attorney's office gave no
indication of dropping the prosecution against
Dmitry Sklyarov.

Having explored good faith negotiations, the Electronic
Frontier Foundation rejoins the call for nonviolent
protests worldwide to secure the immediate release
of Dmitry Sklarov and dropping of all criminal charges
against him.

A protest is already scheduled in San Francisco for
11:30am this Monday, July 30, at the Federal Courthouse
at 450 Golden Gate Ave. Additional protests will occur
in 25 or more cities worldwide in coming weeks.

NOTE: Will Doherty will be out of the office until
August 8, so please direct media requests to
press@eff.org and activism communications to
free-dmitry@eff.org

Free Dmitry and Reform the DMCA,

Will Doherty
