In order for your infringement notice to be withdrawn you must be able to satisfy one of the below Grounds for Review.
The Little Prince is perplexed. He owns only a flower, which he waters every day.
Three volcanoes, which he cleans every week. There are many businessmen who own knowledge today. Elsevier owns some of the largest databases of academic material, which are licensed at prices so scandalously high that even Harvard, the richest university of the global north, has complained that it cannot afford them any longer.
Robert Darnton, the past director of Harvard Library, says "We faculty do the research, write the papers, referee papers by other researchers, serve on editorial boards, all of it for free … and then we buy back the results of our labour at outrageous prices.
The social media, mailing lists and IRC channels have been filled with their distress messages, desperately seeking articles and publications. Even as the New York District Court was delivering its injunction, news came of the entire editorial board of highly-esteemed journal Lingua handing in their collective resignation, citing as their reason the refusal by Elsevier to go open access and give up on the high fees it charges to authors and their academic institutions.
It is threatened to go the way of other small publishers that are being rolled over by the growing monopoly and concentration in the publishing market. These are just some of the signs that the system is broken. It devalues us, authors, editors and readers alike. It parasites on our labor, it thwarts our service to the public, it denies us access 6.
We have the means and methods to make knowledge accessible to everyone, with no economic barrier to access and at a much lower cost to society.
Commercial publishers effectively impede open access, criminalize us, prosecute our heroes and heroines, and destroy our libraries, again and again.
That's what they want: And they have the full support of the courts and law to do exactly that.
Alexandra Elbakyan's original plea put the stakes much higher: We share our writing secretly behind the backs of our publishers, circumvent paywalls to access articles and publications, digitize and upload books to libraries.
We are all custodians of knowledge, custodians of the same infrastructures that we depend on for producing knowledge, custodians of our fertile but fragile commons. To be a custodian is, de facto, to download, to share, to read, to write, to review, to edit, to digitize, to archive, to maintain libraries, to make them accessible.
It is to be of use to, not to make property of, our knowledge commons. More than seven years ago Aaron Swartz, who spared no risk in standing up for what we here urge you to stand up for too, wrote: We need to take stuff that's out of copyright and add it to the archive.
We need to buy secret databases and put them on the Web. We need to download scientific journals and upload them to file sharing networks. We need to fight for Guerilla Open Access. With enough of us, around the world, we'll not just send a strong message opposing the privatization of knowledge — we'll make it a thing of the past.
Will you join us? This is the time to recognize that the very existence of our massive knowledge commons is an act of collective civil disobedience. It is the time to emerge from hiding and put our names behind this act of resistance.Dec 22, · Ticket Infringement Notice Last month I received a fine for not having a valid ticket to travel on Melbourne’s controversial public transport system.
