Harvard Ethics youngster charged with massive online theft
Copyright Alliance Takes On The Aaron Swartz Case With A Post Full Of Bad Analogies.
Studying Ethics in University didn't seem to do much. The irony.
The Harvard Ethics youngster is a known activist that pushes the envelope. Just because the Feds arrest someone, does not mean they can put together a bulletproof case against them, or that they even have a case that will stand up in court.. A couple of TechDirt articles (other than the one referenced above) expressed great doubts about the case against him (Sorry, I can no longer locate those articles from the rss feed).
Apparently, the gist according to what I remember about those articles, is that a lot (if not all) of the academic articles in question were funded with public money by government research projects (and should therefore be made public), but are squirreled away in institutions and not available to the public (inaccessible) - which has a lot to do with the agenda that the Harvard youngster is attempting to change by his activism (actions).
It seems that there is more than just the simple ethical irony going on in this case, and some would say a justifiable reason.
