NY Times on Malamud and Pacer

We posted about Carl Malamud and his site here last year. Now he take on PACER, the Public Access to Court Electronic Records service. This New York Times article chronicles Malamud and fellow activist's effort to exploit a free Pacer trial offered to libraries around the country by going to the libraries, downloading as many court documents as possible, and republishing them on the web. I wouldn't presume to comment on the ethics, but I would love to have access to PACER....
