    Fake Non-Fiction BooksFalse AdvertisingThe Social Network (2010 Movie)Defamation By Omission

    Case Summary: Aaron Greenspan, creator of the 2003 predecessor to The Facebook at Harvard University, sued popular author Benjamin Mezrich, his publisher Random House, and Columbia Pictures for copyright infringement, defamation and false advertising due to the statements made by Mezrich in and about his book "The Accidental Billionaires." Mezrich's book, which cites Greenspan's as a source, has been marketed as supposed non-fiction, even though the story is full of inconsistencies and outright falsifications, many of which Mezrich admits to. Mezrich notably omitted Greenspan's role in the creation of the web site, and helped to prop up Mark Zuckerberg as a "genius" in his book, leading to the eventual motion picture "The Social Network," and contributing to the frenzy surrounding Facebook's problematic IPO.

    In The NewsProsecutorial MisconductAaron Swartz

    Case Summary: Open information activist Aaron Swartz, whose work obtaining PACER data directly led to the creation of PlainSite, was viciously prosecuted by the United States Department of Justice after he used a Massachusetts Institute of Technology wiring closet to download millions of academic journal articles from JSTOR, with which he may have later planned to conduct a quantitative analysis. The DOJ's prosecution ended with Swartz's suicide on January 11, 2013, which many argue was caused by the criminal proceedings.
