Interesting timing on that insider trading charge

Mark Cuban, celebrity businessman of "Dancing with the Stars" fame, the Dallas Mavericks and several movie roles, has been charged with insider trading. Says Wired:
The complaint claims that in 2004 Cuban learned of a private offering of (now known as Copernic) that would decrease the value of his 600,000 shares. It says he then sold off his stake and as a result, reportedly saved $750,000.
Coincidentally, I'm sure, Cuban recently bankrolled the site,, which is tasked with tracking the distribution of the federal government's $700 billion boondoggle ... err ... bailout.

Not that I'm making any accusations, but ... Interesting timing, that.
