Tributes are being paid to web activist and developer Aaron Swartz, who committed suicide at the weekend. At the time of his death he faced hacking charges in the US for downloading academic research documents. Voice of Russia spoke to Loz Kaye, Leader of the Pirate Party.

Aaron Swartz, 26 when he died, helped create RSS, one of the earliest ways of freeing data on the internet and co-founded the news collator Reddit.
