A 35 year sentence —let alone one at all— for what amounts to copyright infringement is a depressing indication of what the top end of our society values most.

I don't think it has to do with copyright infringement. JSTOR settled. It was MIT who still had a problem because his actions caused a disruption to their network.
But even in that scenario, 35 years is completely excessive. I don't think it was jail-worthy crime. Whatever financial losses MIT feels they incurred from the network disruption, that's what his punishment should be. To pay it back, with interest. I don't think he should have faced jailtime
