There is no such thing as "breaking" an unfair law. The consequences were also unfair, and it's his life to decide.

MIT had dropped the charges against him. It was Federal prosecutors who wanted to make an example of him and charged him with the most extreme charges. Besides, how do we know that someone didn't just kill him and then make it look like a suicide in order to make him look like a pussy?

Sure, he was killed just like every other person who's charged with a crime. It's why we have the smallest prison population in the world.

There was literally no benefit to killing him. They had him good already. It's not like there was a possibility of getting acquitted.

Owen Rivera

He had written reports before that used massive pools of research and academic resources so it may have been for something similar. Alternatvely it is possible he was going to release it all publically, this is also likely as he had expressed view impling he thinks all info should be free and that JSTOR was operating in an illegal manner.

Imagine actually being soft on convicted felons. You're a goddamn moron.

Dominic Campbell
Dominic Campbell

The problem with felons is that they reoffend because they are unwanted in society. Imagine being so much of a goddamn moron that you want criminals to stay criminals rather than reforming. This doesn’t even address the issue of why hacking in most instances is a felony or requires such severe penalties.

What did he mean by this?

Samuel Reyes
Samuel Reyes

JSTOR (and many others) is basically the privatisation of knowledge, or at least rent-seeking on it.
This case and related shenanigans are what pushed open access journals and self-publishing by universities.

A lot of the journal databases like JSTOR won't let people offer their paper for free and then charge everyone else to read it, and usually the author is either paying to publish the paper or giving up publishing rights in it. And they do unpaid editing/reviewing for the journal too.

There's a lot of bullshit by journal publishers and they deserved a kick in the nads.

JSTOR put the effort and capital into developing their system and collecting all that data. He tried to steal it and give it away for free. Nothing stopped him from creating a similar system on his own, instead of stealing it. He got what he deserved.

If the injured party doesn’t want to press charges, the case should be dropped, period. He “stole” documents from an educational institution, not beat and rape a woman.

Carter Gutierrez

lolwat. Does that apply to cellphones, TVs, gaming consoles etc? How are they even able to enforce that? Better yet, how does the clapistan gubement expect for a person to make living if he can't use a computer? Why would an employer take that handicapped person over anyone else? Even the most grass root companies use online calendars for their schedules. You can't really even start your own business unless you have someone else to do the accounting, emails, marketing etc.

Swartz's maximum
That's the heftiest charges the court could lay against him. Whether they would've or not is entirely dependant on his defense, the plaintiff's prosecution, and the judge's and jury's outlook on the matter. I don't know how the court battle went, it's been a long time since I read about it. I doubt they hit him with the max sentence.
And you don't see a problem with that?
