http://paidcontent.org/2012/09/10/open-access-research-catastrophic-for-reed-elsevier/ I wonder if this will actually happen. It seems like there is a movement in Europe, but I am not sure how it will truly work here. I liked the comparison of the music industry and its open file sharing. In fact, I heard a little something recently about an individual who had been given a larger fine for file sharing and is now fighting the larger fine. As librarians and libraries, the desire to color within the lines is great, so I think any access outside of established boundaries would be minimal. It would be interesting to see if open access will become the norm in the future. I just don't think I can see it in the near future, but I have been out of this area for long. What do others think?
