All Aaron Swartz wanted to do was spread knowledge and for that he was tried at court resulting in him commuting suicide. He didn’t have any bad intentions with the information he put out he was generally trying to help others out. Sometimes we come across websites that require us to be members for which we have to pay to be. So why not have access to credited and reliable information when it can really help us? Although I do have to add he should’ve been a little more cautious about the way he used government funded information. Copyrighting from the government already sounds like something that can get you in a plethora of trouble. But I do believe that his idea of spreading information was not wrong.
