It is the role of research institutes and university boards to step
forward and make an emphatic statement about the status quo and,
how their subordinates/affiliates are expected to behave. Taxpayers 
do not have an excuse of confusion when they make their contributions
so, that puts some responsibility on the individual authors, too.

btw. -sorry if the question has been asked again over here-
is there an open ranking list of universities worldwide 
as regards the clarity of their messaging in relation to Open Access?
