March Open Access Newsletter Available

The March 2006 Open Access Newsletter is now available. Peter Suber highlights the efforts to strengthen the NIH Public Access Policy, and talks about:

Three gathering storms that could cause collateral damage for open access - the webcasting treaty, opposition to net neutrality, and the end to free e-mail. This is a really good, easy-to-understand summary of some of what I see as the key policy issues of our times, issues which will affect basic human freedoms and library services as a whole, not just open access.

and more...

I agree with two of the issues but not with the "end of free e-mail." Free e-mail is not going away. Look at the growth of G-mail. AOL now offers free e-mail accounts. E-mail is a non-issue to me.
