Question: Hi Justin. Your thoughts (yes / no / conditional) on free and universal sharing of academic knowledge/ science/ research and non fiction / academic books (ref. forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?p=...

    Well obviously ideas/knowledge/concepts should be completely free. As far as copyrighted content, I think that most people who create copyrighted content generally are pretty reasonable about the policies of its distribution. Aggregators of content are less reasonable, typically, which isn't ideal.

    @Justin so if anyone wants to just read some "commercial" scientific articles for free, is this fair regarding the authors from your point of view?

  • Posted by Justin on April 14 2019, 9:00pm:
    My point is that I would imagine most authors would be fine with people reading their articles for free.
