Grazie Paola della segnalazione. 
Un'altra ottima ragione per firmare la petizione https://www.coar-repositories.org/activities/advocacy-leadership/petition-against-elseviers-sharing-policy/
 Ŕ la minaccia di "notice and take down" fatta da Elsevier nel suo comunicato http://www.elsevier.com/connect/elsevier-updates-its-policies-perspectives-and-services-on-article-sharing 
alle "piattaforme" che non condividono con Elsevier i loro dati: 
" We are committed to collaborative development of standard approaches to cross-platform usage sharing and ask hosting platforms to share this information with us when the systems are in place to do so easily. This will enable us to report consolidated usage back to authors and their institutions and provide more intelligent recommendations to users of our platforms.
It will take some time to develop some of these services and for hosting platforms to implement them. For those hosting platforms that signal they agree in principle with this plan, and who wish to work in partnership with us, we will in the interim condone sharing on their platforms that is not fully aligned with our policies.
For those platforms that do not wish to work in partnership with Elsevier, as we noted in 2013 we do from time to time send and receive takedown notices when our scans reveal that an article has been – usually inadvertently – shared in other ways". 
Che le piattaforme in questione non siano solo Academia.eu e simili, ma anche i repository degli atenei lo si capisce leggendo pi¨ avanti. 
Risultato: controllo totale che Elsevier potrÓ avere sulla circolazione dei "suoi" articoli, ma tecnicamente il controllo sarÓ possibile anche su tutto quanto Ŕ depositato nelle piattaforme, e in proposito ricordo cosa dice il W3C su API e privacy: 
http://www.w3.org/TR/dap-privacy-reqs/.
Tutto questo tracciamento viene ovviamente presentato come un vantaggio per gli autori, per una pi¨ capillare rilevazione dei loro indici citazionali. Per certi versi (il verso degli indici citazionali), potrebbe anche esserlo. Dubito per˛ che alla lunga la libertÓ di ricerca possa trarre vantaggio dall'espansione del controllo sui suoi prodotti da parte di un oligopolio commerciale.

*NEW POLICY FROM ELSEVIER IMPEDES OPEN ACCESS AND SHARING*

/Global coalition of organizations denounce the policy and urge Elsevier to revise it/

*Washington, DC and Gottingen, Germany*Elsevier new sharing and hostingpolicy <http://www.elsevier.com/connect/elsevier-updates-its-policies-perspectives-and-services-on-article-sharing>represents
a significant obstacle to the dissemination and use of research knowledge, and creates unnecessary barriers for Elsevier published authors in complying with funders’ open access policies, according to an analysis by the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition
(SPARC) and the Confederation of Open Access Repositories (COAR).

Elsevier's policy is in direct conflict with the global trend towards open access and serves only to dilute the benefits of openly sharing research results,” said Heather Joseph, Executive Director of SPARC and Kathleen Shearer, Executive Director of COAR, in a joint statement. “Elsevier claims that the policy advances sharing but in fact, it does the opposite. We strongly urge Elsevier to revise it.

The new stance marks a significant departure from Elsevier's initial policy, established in 2004, which allowed authors to self-archive their final accepted manuscripts of peer-reviewed articles in institutional repositories without delay.  While the stated purpose of the new revision is, in part, to roll back an ill-conceived 2012 amendment prohibiting authors at institutions that have adopted campus-wide Open Access policies from immediate self archiving, the net result of the new policy is that Elsevier has placed greater restrictions on sharing articles.

Twenty-three groups today released the following statement in opposition to the policy:

€œOn April 30, 2015, Elsevier announced a new sharing and hosting policy for Elsevier journal articles. This policy represents a significant obstacle to the dissemination and use of research knowledge, and creates unnecessary barriers for Elsevier published authors in complying with funders’ open access policies. In addition, the policy has been adopted without any evidence that immediate sharing of articles has a negative impact on publishers’ subscriptions.

€œDespite the claim by Elsevier that the policy advances sharing, it actually does the opposite. The policy imposes unacceptably long embargo periods of up to 48 months for some journals. It also requires authors to apply a "non-commercial and no derivative works" license for each article deposited into a repository, greatly inhibiting the re-use value of these articles. Any delay in the open availability of research articles curtails scientific progress and places unnecessary constraints on delivering the benefits of research back to the public.

“Furthermore, the policy applies to "all articles previously published and those published in the future" making it even more punitive for both authors and institutions. This may also lead to articles that are currently available being suddenly embargoed and inaccessible to readers.

As organizations committed to the principle that access to information advances discovery, accelerates innovation and improves education, we support the adoption of policies and practices that enable the immediate, barrier free access to and reuse of scholarly articles. This policy is in direct conflict with the global trend towards open access and serves only to dilute the benefits of openly sharing research results.

€œWe strongly urge Elsevier to reconsider this policy and we encourage other organizations and individuals to express their opinions.”
