Past vs Future Scholarly Journal edition

Publishers whine:

Some Publishers of Scholarly Journals Dislike Bill to Require Online Access to Articles

A proposed law that requires taxpayer-financed research to be available online could endanger the frail business of scholarly publishing.
...“Not everybody has a library next door. I don't mean to be flippant about it, but this gives access to anybody,” said Donald Stewart, a spokesman for Senator Cornyn. “The genesis of this was his interest in open government and finding ways to reform our Freedom of Information laws and taxpayer access to federally funded work.”

so, don't take taxpayer funding then. Even though this is a bill proposed by Whiney Joe (Lieberman - R/D) and the idiot John Cornyn (R), the proposed change does make sense, to this taxpayer anyway.
