Aaron Swartz Indictment Leading People To... Upload JSTOR Research To File Sharing Sites

Mike Masnick, TechDirt, Jul 22, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The fallout has not settled from the indictment of Aaron Swartz for copying gigabytes of JSTOR academic papers to his own hard drive. As Techdirt reports here, others have been prompted by the action to upload large masses to JSTOR papers to file sharing sites. " Indeed, Adam points us to the news that a guy by the name of Greg Maxwell just released 33GB of JSTOR scientific papers via The Pirate Bay because of the indictment against Aaron." Mike Masnick writes, "In this case, believe it or not, it's all public domain research, which JSTOR is trying to charge hundreds of thousands of dollars to access." People are not happy right now.
