la notizia della re-introduzione del Fair Copyright in Research Works 
Act, HR 801 http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d111:H.R.801:   
commentata in modo esteso sul blog di P. Suber. 
http://www.earlham.edu/~peters/fos/2009/02/conyers-bill-is-back.html .
"The premise of the bill, urged by the publishing lobby, is that the NIH 
policy somehow violates copyright law.  The premise is false and 
cynical.  If the NIH policy violated copyrights, or permitted the 
violation of copyrights, publishers wouldn't have to back this bill to 
amend US copyright law.  Instead, they'd be in court where they'd 
already have a remedy.  For a detailed analysis of the bill and point by 
point rebuttal to the publishing lobby's rhetoric, see my article from 
October 2008."
non capisco in che modo possa la policy del NIH violare il copyright, ma 
va anche approfondito cosa dica questo Fair ....Act.
