Copyright vs. freedom of scientific communication
Abstract:Recent developments in copyright law and practice, all inspired or triggered by the new digital networked environment, have the potential of negatively affecting the freedom of scientific communication. In this paper a number of these developments will be briefly examined. The author concludes that it is critically important for the global scientific community to become actively involved in the international, European, and national legislative process to protect scientific freedoms against further erosion.
