Opening Salvos in ElcomSoft Trial
The trial of a Russian software firm accused of selling an illegal encryption-disabling program got off to a brisk start in federal court Tuesday, as attorneys delved into the question of whether electronic files should be afforded protections not extended to paper documents.
Opening statements and testimony from two witnesses rounded out day one of court proceedings in the case of U.S. vs. ElcomSoft. Federal prosecutors are charging Moscow-based ElcomSoft with illegally creating and selling software that breaks through security features on Adobe Systems' eBook platform.
But in laying out his defense, Burton also asked jurors to consider the relatively generous rights afforded to people who purchase paper books, which he later referred to as "p-books." Buyers of paper books can do whatever they like, whether it be lend them, re-sell them, or give them away.
Unlike a p-book, Burton said, "an eBook seeks to control what the user can do with that book."
