Re: <nettime> Aaron Swartz charged for downloading too many Journal articles from the Library: Please sign suport petition.


I would put my hands in the fire (don't know if in English this
expression = exist - meaning I strongly beat) that the academic
publication system works= though corruption and traffic of influences
between the private academic j= ournals and academic authorities,
as it is now being public in regards to t= he SGAE (now with a big
scandal in Spain) and similar societies of authors = and editors for
the cultural sector.

Do someone knows about cases of denouncing academic corruption in
courts? I= ask this because I think we need to go beyond promoting
open access and ex= plaining how absurd it is, and start denounce the
current system.

Cheers! Mayo
