Alan Grayson Praises Net Neutrality Activist Aaron Swartz
In his intro for the DC screening of the documentary "Killswitch," Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL 9) talked at length about Reddit founder and internet activist Aaron Swartz. Swartz organized the successful global protest of the anti-piracy SOPA legislation, and as a consequence was targeted for prosecution by the federal government. Facing tens of thousands of dollars in mounting legal fees and potentially decades in jail, he killed himself. "Killswitch" looks at the sacrifices made by Swartz and Edward Snowden in the name of internet freedom and civil rights.
