I have in my drawer a copy of copyright signed with Elsevier about 8
months ago by a researcher of my lab.

Below, part of Rights of authors :

    "Posting of a preprint version of this work on an electronic public
    server is permitted. Posting of the published article on a secure
    network (not accessible to the public) within the author's
    institution is permitted. However, posting of the published article
    on an electronic public server can only be done with Elsevier's
    written permission."

This seems more precise than is the interview. What is your feeling?
