A frenzy ensued at , as many remembered Aaron Swartz, the co-founder of Reddit, who was accused of taking content from the JSTOR library and making it available to everyone for free.

While many are celebrating JSTOR's new move, the company's twitter account said this section of the JSTOR library will be temporarily open.

Although opening a part of the library is a good initiative. Basically JSTOR should have made more concessions with freebies , especially when he has been embroiled in such a major controversy.
