I am correct in assuming, I take it, that this "freeing" of the academic
literature also "frees" it from certain copyright restrictions and, in
particular, allows such articles to be downloaded, printed,
and distributed by academics to own students at the cost of printing, that
allows non-profit educational uses of this literature without permission.
This matter is seldom, if ever mentioned, on the list...but anything less
does not free the literature.
