Is any university appointing new professors or teachers based on
contributions to open archives or open e-journals only, simply
ignoring any printed or non-open works, yet?

If I contribute an article to an open archive or e-journal, can I set
a license (GNU GPL or Creative Commons style) that effectively
prohibits its results from being quoted or used in non-open archives?
(I guess not.)

Is anybody teaching courses only using openly available papers?

Is anybody doing research into the questions above?
