If you read the Michael Lewis's bestseller "Flash Boys" and are familiar with my story of being prosecuted in 2009 for creating a mixed copy of open/proprietary source code upon leaving Goldman Sachs, and would like to help me offset the legal costs, please donate. That legal case resulted in an acquittal in the NY Federal court, and an acquittal in the NY State court by a trial judge.  The state case was appealed by the DA's office, and the NY State Court of Appeals reversed one count broadly interpreting the law and finding that the source code copy was tangible, whereas the Fed court previously found that the same was intangible, which was the reason for the prior acquittal.  At sentencing the judgement was time served with no punishment.  The case involved no damages and no actual harm, yet was harshly prosecuted for a number of years.  Details can be found here.
