Aaron Swartz

Stop Online Piracy Act has retrained us from accessing to knowledge. Aaron Swartz againsted it and wanted to help us open up more access to knowledge. He downloaded millions of academic journal articles from JSTOR and being charged with 13 felony offenses from federal prosecutor. Pamela Samuelson explained several reasons that federal prosecutor should not charge Swartz. I totally agree with what he said, “There was a time when access to knowledge was promoted through grants of  copyrights to authors who typically transferred them to publishers. Now  copyright has become the single most serious impediment to access to knowledge.” Copyright sometimes limit us to obtain more knowledge.
