NatyHoffman writes: The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) is the world's largest association of computer science professionals and researchers. It operates a digital library which provides access to papers from ACM journals for a fee. Recently, the ACM has been behaving more like a Big Media conglomerate than a non-profit professional association; they have now reached a new low. The US government is collecting public feedback on open access to federally-funded research, and ACM has submitted a comment defending the status quo. Shouldn't the ACM be representing the interests of its members rather than its own pocketbook?
