Internet Activist Charged in MIT Data Theft

“Aaron Swartz, a 24-year-old programmer and online political activist, has been indicted in Boston on charges that he stole more than four million documents from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and JSTOR, an archive of scientific journals and academic papers.” The weird part? JSTOR dropped all claims against him, because “they’ve suffered no loss or damage, and asked the government not to prosecute”. Weird.
