|A federal indictment unsealed in Boston on Tuesday morning on charges that the researcher, Aaron Swartz, broke into the computer networks at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to gain access to JSTOR, a nonprofit online service for distributing scholarly articles online, and downloaded 4.8 million articles and other documents — nearly the entire library.|
Sorry if I made any mistakes, this is my first time posting a news story
I am very surprised to not find this story on ocn.
One of the problems surrounding this situation is that DemandProgress emails just say to sign a petition for him, and that he has done NOTHING wrong. My opinion of the origination has went down because of this. Nowhere in the email does it say what he has been indited with, what he actually did, nor are there any links to other sources of information. Very one sided from the organization, but online news sites seem to be doing much better with providing proper un biased information.
Edit: The reason I posted this in tech/science section of news is because it does not fit anywhere else, and the reason Aaron did this was intentions to give out the documents out for free. The documents in question are journal articles, hence the Science/Tech section.
