Academic Research on Aaron's Law
- Aaron's Law: Bringing sensibility to the computer fraud and abuse Act, Murfin, M. (2013). Aaron's Law: Bringing sensibility to the computer fraud and abuse Act. S. Ill. ULJ, 38, 469. This article discusses the how the computer fraud and abuse Act can help to address computer fraud. The author begins by explaining how Aaron Swartz, a 24-year-old, had been indicated using the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) of 1986 for downloading and distributing JSTORs digitized academic journal archive.

- Aaron's Law: Reactionary Legislation in the Guise of Justice, Viana, M. A. (2015). U. Mass. L. Rev., 10, 214. According to the Note, the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), also known as Aarons Law, resulted in the prosecution and the death of hacktivist Aaron Swartz. The note describes the circumstances under which Aaron had been prosecuted, namely his act of downloading data from JSTOR and distributing. The Note further examines another case, Robbins v. Lower Merion School District, which had also been ruled using the CFAA. Amending the Act, according to the Note, would help to remove a civil remedy in the case of Robbins. The Note concludes that the case of Aaron Swartz could have involved prosecutorial discretion in order to allow CFAA to function as intended by the Congress while also offering meaningful remedies to plaintiffs like Robbins.

- [PDF] The CFAA and Aaron's Law, Juo, J. This article discusses the invention of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) as well as Aarons law. According to the author, the CFAA was enacted in 1984 with the aim of criminalizing the hacking of computers in line with financial records, national security, and government property. It had, however, been amended several times including 1994 and 1996 when it was expanded to protect computers and communication. The author then discusses the story of Aaron Swartz who had been arrested and prosecuted for hacking JSTOR and distributing its content. Later, Aarons Law was introduced in 2013, an amendment of CFAA which required the removal of the exceeds authorized access language from the statute and define access without authorization to refer to the access of information on a protected computer that the accesser lacks authorization to obtain by circumventing technological measures that prevent unauthorized individuals from obtaining that information.
