Aaron Swartz documentary ‘The Internet’s Own Boy’

Filmmaker Brian Knappenberger has created The Internet’s Own Boy, a documentary that traces Swartz’s early impact on the web and details his struggle with the government after being caught downloading a mass of copyrighted articles from the digital library JSTOR. The film premiered in January at Sundance, where Swartz’s father and brothers were around to speak about Aaron, his case, and his work. Its first trailer has just debuted, and the documentary itself will be released on June 27th.
