The title of that article promotes confusion. I have read the article about Sal Mansy who traded 6 bitcoins (if I remember it correctly). However, he wasn't imprisoned because he traded bitcoin nor because bitcoin is illegal. In fact, he was imprisoned because he failed to register his business activities with the authorities about money-service. But looking at the title of this article, it simply tells a one-sided story that the man is imprisoned because of trading.
