Feds Reach Plea Agreement In Software Piracy

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - One of two Chinese nationals charged in an international software piracy scheme has reached a plea agreement with federal prosecutors in Delaware.
    
Xiang Li has agreed to plead guilty to two conspiracy counts involving copyright infringement and wire fraud. He is scheduled to appear at a plea hearing Monday. Prosecutors agreed to drop more than 40 other counts against Li.
    
Li and codefendant Chun Lan Li were charged with conspiracy, copyright infringement, smuggling, wire fraud and other crimes.
    
Cosburn Wedderburn, a former NASA employee from Maryland, is awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty in April to conspiracy. Prosecutors said he purchased more than $1 million worth of stolen software.
    
The case involves a website called "Crack 99" that sold pirated software in which access control mechanisms had been "cracked," or circumvented.
