SURF, Oct 25, 2006

From the email press release: "SURF and JISC today published a model agreement that will help authors make appropriate arrangements with publishers for the publication of a journal article." In the proposed model, the author retains copyright, the publisher is granted a license to publish the work, and then (here's where it gets odd) "once the article has been published, the author can make it publicly accessible - in the form in which it was published by the publisher - by making it available as part of a digital scientific collection (a 'repository')." Why this additional restriction? Why not just let me run it on my website?
