The free exchange of information

The state of Georgia doesn’t want you to see its laws and court decisions unless you pay. The Science-Industrial Complex doesn’t want you to see the scientific work on SciHub unless you pay. Copyright is supposed to increase learning.

Thanx to Slate Star Codex, which notes, "It sure would be bad if this kind of lawsuit led to a Streisand effect that made even more people aware that sci-hub exists and is a website with almost all academic papers on it available unpaywalled for free."
