ATG Hot Topics of the Week: Open Access, Bruce Willis, & Alleged E-book Price Fixing

by Jonathan H. Harwell, Rollins College

What a week!  Springer has launched an open-access book publishing program; SAGE has published an open-access report on the future of open access in academic libraries; Campus Technology has published a feature article on open access and journal pricing; Bruce Willis might or might not be concerned about bequeathing his iTunes collection (whether or not it’s true, the story highlights the ephemeral nature of licensing vs. the permanence of owning…by the way, this is why I still buy CD’s!); and the US Department of Justice has settled with Hachette, HarperCollins, and Simon & Schuster for allegedly colluding with Apple to fix the retail prices of e-books in order to compete with Amazon.
