Indeed a promising development for Serge!
I think this was a bit extraordinary:
On February 16, 2012, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit heard oral argument on his appeal and, later that same day, ordered his conviction reversed and a judgment of acquittal entered, with opinion to follow.
The same day, after hearing oral arguments? This has been going on since 2009!
More info on the original conviction here:
"At best, the Aleynikov case looks like an attempt by federal prosecutors and the courts to set a strong example that this sort of conduct will not be tolerated. "
And more info on the acquittal here:
Interestingly, inflation has expanded the amount of code copied from "thousands of lines of code" to "hundreds of thousand lines".
