[BOAI] Re: Signalling the openness of references cited on Wikipedia
From: Julia Bolton Holloway <holloway.julia AT tiscali.it>
In my own case I don't mind material I have placed on the web, etc., re-used, provided I am cited. It is there as scholarship to be shared openly. Otherwise it would be plagiary. I find the copyright world impossible. Publishers control it, not authors, and I find publishers sell one's published books to places like Questia, which one can't access with paying them - to read one's own material! Also, scholarly journals publish reviews of my books but don't send me a copy and block me from reading said reviews behind a paywall. Essentially copyright for authors is destroyed. A poor scholar cannot afford to legally challenge publishers and others from selling one's research. Why I would be so grateful for a usable copyleft symbol http://www.florin.ms http://www.umilta.net -- Julia Bolton Holloway Mediatheca 'Fioretta Mazzei' 'English' Cemetery P.le Donatello, 38 50132 FIRENZE ITALY -- To unsubscribe from the BOAI Forum, use the form on this page: http://mailman.ecs.soton.ac.uk/mailman/listinfo/boai-forum
