Fall Meet-up: Hacking the Library – USA vs. Swartz

September 28, 2012 by remlee

Champion's Bar

Join us for an informal and lively discussion about the impending United States of America vs. Aaron Swartz case. Swartz has been charged with 13 felonies for hacking into the JSTOR database from the MIT network and downloading millions of articles.

Whose side are you on – was he simply freeing information that should be publicly available, or did he truly commit a crime? What does this mean for research libraries? How is legislation keeping up with the digital revolution?

Food for thought:

When:
Thursday, November 8, 5:30pm to 7pm

Where:
Champions Sports Bar, Marriott Hotel
Kendall Square plaza (next to the Red Line)
50 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02142
