When you look more closely on how Elsevier works in publishing it's absolutely disgusting, a litteral scam.
Sci-hub is really a great ressource, there is no going back.

It is convenient. But no matter how we phrase it, it's still "illegal" (scihub)

Knowledge should be free, but instead it is a big business. And the scammers and extortioners want to use illegal means to protect their shady way of doing business. Outrageous. Have they no shame?

Illegal in that case means on the side of the money. Professors, students, academics and man on the street are all in favor of sci-hub. Afterall, the totality of the content Elsevier and co. lock behind paywall or really really expensive subscriptions is provided for free by all the phd student and academics !!

Imagine working your *** off for 5  years or more then having people in suits who did nothing more than indexing it, charching insane amount to access your work. Furthermore the one being charged those insane fees are other researchers like you !

@Socrates just like I said. No matter how we may want to legitimize it, it will not actually. It is sort of comparable to piracy.  I am not saying that your arguments are not valid. It's just that researchers have used Elsevier and co. to publish their 5-years work and agreed to abide by their rules. So, legally Elsevier wins.
