Campaign for Cambridge Freedoms

Various authors, Sept 29, 2002
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Dissenting academic staff at Cambridge have launched a website opposing proposals by the university to assert ownership over faculty work (below). The academic staff write that university ownership will undermine academic freedoms, will eliminate staff vetos on how work is exploited, will impact employment conditions ("many historians supplement their meagre salaries by writing popular history books"), will discourage the production of printed notes, and will discourage spin-off companies. The page links to coverage from numerous publications.
