Debate between Lessig and Conyers

Larry Lessig and Michael Eisen call out a bill in congress that’d restrict publishing of government scientific research to subscription-only journals. Representative John Conyers is a sponsor of that bill.

“The law would forbid entities like the NIH from requiring that recipients of government grants make the product of their research openly accessible. (The current practice requires articles be freely accessible after 12 months.)”

There are several posts in the ongoing debate. I’m keeping track of them here:
