Internet’s Own Boy: ‘Cyber-Robin Hood’ Aaron Swartz honored in crowdfunded doc

A public-funded documentary about, Aaron Swartz, the late computer prodigy and digital-rights activist is set for release. The co-founder of the popular social networking service Reddit fought for a free and open Internet. But a US government case against the programmer is thought to have driven him to suicide at the age of 26. RT's Marina Portnaya talked to the director of the documentary about Swartz's legacy.
