Tragic suicide of Aaron Swartz

1 post in this topic

Aaron Swartz 1986-2013 mentions some of his achievements and the most likely reason he committed suicide. It seems to me that a potential 35 year prison and $1 million fine were exponentially too harsh for downloading subscription-only articles with the intent to distribute them.


RIP, Aaron.
