Michael Geist's "BNA Internet Law News" incldued details of an article by him
on Canadian Open Access:

My [Michael Geist's] weekly Law Bytes column focuses on the recent message
from Canadian national science advisor Dr. Arthur Carty who
argued that scientific success increasingly depends upon
fostering a "culture of sharing" based on open access models
of communication that leverage the Internet to disseminate
research quickly and freely to all. I note that while
researchers rarely receive compensation for their
contributions, publishers have enjoyed a financial windfall
by charging thousands of dollars for journals filled with
the free content generated with the financial support of the
public purse through millions of dollars in research grants.
