Richard Poynder writes, " the Scholarly Communications Officer at Duke University in the US, Kevin Smith, published a blog post challenging a widely held assumption amongst OA advocates that when scholars transfer copyright in their papers they transfer only the final version of the article."

The bulk of the article is a guest post by Oppenheim, which is unfortunately not as useful as the introduction.
