What exactly was illegal in downloading articles from PACER and JSTOR? The nature of these "misdemeanors" is widely misunderstood, so we will have a discussion on exactly what is illegal or not. This video is a discussion about Aaron Swartz's life and works and its implications on our understandings of law, state and society.

This discussion was held during the Aaron Swartz Memorial Hacknight organized by HasGeek and Centre for Internet and Society (CIS) on January 19, 2013. For more details about the discussion, visit: http://hacknight.in/hasgeek/aaronsw-memorial/projects/1-what-did-aaron-do
