The FBI took a Russian encryption expert into custody Monday at his hotel in Las Vegas for allegedly publishing software that cracks a variety of methods used to secure e-books. The bureau acknowledged Tuesday that it had arrested security researcher Dmitry Sklyarov for what it said was a violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. The arrest came a day after Sklyarov outlined the problems plaguing e-book formats and Adobe's PDF format at the Def Con hacking conference.
