For not being grassroots it sure has been going on for a while now. Almost two months now. For a $25 billion plus industry, the trade press is really terrible. Perhaps people who play games expect more that what the existing setup delivers. I find it to be mostly repackaged PR pieces and manufactured outrage at issue X of the day. Its time to grow up and be professional.

I like this bit from TFA:
Shillum says that Elsevier is ahead of the curve — but that other publishers are likely to follow soon. CrossRef, a non-profit collaboration of thousands of scholarly publishers, will in the next few months launch a service that lets researchers agree to standard text-mining terms and conditions by clicking a button on a publisher’s website, a ‘one-click’ solution similar to Elsevier’s set-up.

I would like to see that.
