Malamud on Aaron and freeing legal data

Carl Malamud of Public.Resource.Org has posted his eulogy for Aaron Swartz, entitled Aaron’s Army.

The eulogy describes several of Carl and Aaron’s efforts to make legal data publicly available, including U.S. copyright registration records and U.S. federal judicial documents from the fee-based PACER database.

Data made public as a result of those efforts are now used in a number of publicly available services.
