Free Access To British Scientific Research Within Two Years
Link: Free access to British scientific research within two years | Science | The Guardian
The government is to unveil controversial plans to make publicly funded scientific research immediately available for anyone to read for free by 2014, in the most radical shakeup of academic publishing since the invention of the internet...

Just what exactly makes this controversial? :\

I suppose the thought that the research will have been paid for by the taxpayer will be available to anyone with an Internet connection [without having to pay (even a nominal fee) to access high quality research]

I dont really see that as such a bad thing. I think the only people upset by this are the big publishers who charge obscene fees for access to research papers!

Any valuable IP will be stolen by factories "outside normal copyright control"; think CE*products.

But how much of the revenue from exploiting the valuable IP in work funded by the taxpayer came back into the public coffers under the current system?
