Isn't this similar to the 'right of way' laws which preclude property owners from putting up a fence across a long-used public path through private property.

It would seem that a long term absence of any active attempt to restrict authors from sharing their publications for non-commercial personal use by others ... constitutes an easement granted by publishers ...
