Comment: I don't know a lot about the case....

I don't know a lot about the case....

...and I'm still researching, but it's my understanding that the allegedly "stolen" documents where scientific journals researched and produced at PUBLIC institutions which have been digitalized and stored away in password protected online vaults and where copyright holders (not the actual authors of the studies) charge fees to review the information contained within said journals.

Additionally, JSTOR decided to drop their complaint against Swartz AND now they've decided to release a majority of these documents for FREE just as Swartz had wanted.

I don't think he was a thief anymore than Robin Hood was perceived to be. The information was the public's to begin with since our resources were used to produce the studies.
