A troubling result from publishing open access articles with CC-BY

Christina Hendricks, Sept 01, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I've written about this quite a bit in the past, so I won't belabout the point, but it is worth linking to this post to show that the things I say will happen with CC-by licensing (as opposed to CC by-NC-SA) actually happen. In particular, we read about UBC professor Rosie Redfield, who recently blogged about the issue, and in particular, posted the results of a survey she did of researchers. People who support CC-by say "oh well, the article is always available for free somewhere." Well, not necessarily, and as Christina Hendricks points out, they might actually be legally required to lobby against the provision of free versions online.
