The story of Sergey Aleynikov as told by Michael Lewis, a legendary story teller.

A month after ace programmer Sergey Aleynikov left Goldman Sachs, he was arrested. Exactly what he’d done neither the F.B.I., which interrogated him, nor the jury, which convicted him a year later, seemed to understand. But Goldman had accused him of stealing computer code, and the 41-year-old father of three was sentenced to eight years in federal prison. Investigating Aleynikov’s case, Michael Lewis holds a second trial.

I remember reading something but can't remember the details.

Was he accused of stealing Boost and Erlang Open Source code?(?)

It's software.
