   SAN JOSE, California -- Dmitry Sklyarov is out on bail.

   A federal magistrate judge ordered that the Russian programmer --
   whose arrest last month on copyright infringement charges sparked
   worldwide protests -- be freed Monday on $50,000 bail.

   After a 30-minute bail hearing, U.S. Magistrate Judge Edward A.
   Infante released Sklyarov but said he must remain in Northern
   California under the supervision of a local friend, Sergei Osoakine.

   Joseph Burton, Sklyarov's defense attorney, said he was "ecstatic"
   that his client would be released. Sklyarov's passport remains in the
   hands of the U.S. Attorney's office, and a pre-trial hearing is set
   for Aug. 23.
