Ryan Singel on the Feds’ Case Against Aaron Swartz

Ryan Singel:

But the feds clearly think they have a substantial hacking case on their hands, even though Swartz used guest accounts to access the network and is not accused of finding a security hole to slip through or using stolen credentials, as hacking is typically defined.

In essence, Swartz is accused of felony hacking for violating MIT and JSTORโ€™s terms of service.

That’s terrifying.
