Paywalling Pays

Who knew Times' readers had it in 'em! The comments on the NYT's dull article about Aaron Swartz's liberties being stolen by JSTOR are fun!

Especially this one:

Go to the IRS 990 for JSTOR,http://www.guidestar.org/FinDocuments/2009/133/857/2009-133857105-06a328... It's a "non-profit" dba "ITHAKA HARBORS".

I count 8 employees with compensation over $250,000. They put academic research behind a paid firewall, so they can bring in the money for these salaries.

Who is the criminal here?

The president of JSTOR, Mr. Kevin M. Guthrie, has a combined compensation of upwards of $420,000.
