Quote:
Swartz was eulogized by his friend and sometime attorney, Lawrence Lessig, calling his prosecution an abuse of proportionality and noting, "the question this government needs to answer is why it was so necessary that Aaron Swartz be labeled a 'felon'."


Quote:
Alex Stamos, CEO of Artemis Internet, is a computer forensics investigator employed by the Swartz legal defense as an expert witness. On January 12, 2013, he posted a summary of the expert testimony he was prepared to present in the JSTOR case, concluding, "I know a criminal hack when I see it, and Aaron’s downloading of journal articles from an unlocked closet is not an offense worth 35 years in jail."[48]


I agree with both of these. The Government and MIT overreacted.

Quote:
The government, however, has interpreted the anti-hacking provisions to include activities such as violating a Web site's terms of service or a company's computer usage policy, a position a federal appeals court in April said means "millions of unsuspecting individuals would find that they are engaging in criminal conduct."


That is a good thing. The government went nuts. I am wondering if someone at MIT has something to do with all these allegations and things... hmm.....

I also saw earlier that the government said that only Swartz was guilty in that interpretation, which reeks of foul play. Just have to find where I saw that. (Chrome crashed and deleted my history, so I can't find it through that.)
