Comment Citer pays but of course (Score 2, Interesting) 390

In terms of fairness, I think getting people who cite an IEEE paper to pay something to the IEEE would be a reasonable solution since they have clearly benefited from reading that article.

But of course, it is not easy to implement. It is also a negative incentive to citing that paper which is bad since the one thing authors want is to be cited.

Marvelous! The super-user's going to boot me! What a finely tuned response to the situation!
