More than a year after Swartz killed himself rather than face prosecution, questions about MIT’s handling of the hacking case persist

Below is an accounting of Aaron Swartz’s alleged illegal downloads from the online archive JSTOR via a network at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology over several months in late 2010 and early 2011.

Note: The total number of articles represented here is 5.5 million, but that includes some articles that were downloaded more than once. Swartz was accused of stealing a total of 4.8 million unique works.
