Ay, there's the rub.

"No person shall manufacture, import, offer to the public, provide, or
otherwise traffic in any technology, product, service, device, component,

To be fair, Sklyarov was arrested for writing the code, though he was arrested
_when_ (or just after) he was discussing it. And he was not tried,
and his employer was found not guilty.
