Aaron Swartzを聖人化するなという意見

ちょっと厳しすぎな意見だと思いつつも、共感できる部分も多い。

He knew that what he was doing with the JSTOR data was criminal, or at best unauthorized; he tried to hide his identity while doing it. But Swartz was offended, so even though he had previously been around the block with the law after the PACER caper (he was investigated then, but no charges filed), he decided his moral outrage trumped the petty laws of the stupid. So he took what he wanted, because he wanted to, and because he could. This is the moral calculus of a child or a criminal, not an adult.

まあ、犯罪者というよりかは子供の行動かなと思う。オープンアクセスに関する彼の主張は正しいかもしれないが、JSTORやPACERに対する彼の行動自体は批判されてしかるべきだったと思うし。
