MIT-a government funded university, doesn't want the average person to have access to journals, which have also been government funded. Obviously, MIT likes its government=public funding, yet we, the taxpayers who provided the money for these government funded projects, aren't allowed to have access to those journals, unless we are forking over an additional $19 per article. So, MIT & other universities are privatizing publicly funded research so they can make a profit....it's all about the money! I do not entirely believe that Aaron Swartz killed himself over these charges. Remember, Alex has always stated that when ever someone goes rouge from the government's demands, that person ends up as a "suicide".
