Committing to open access requires dispensing with the financial, technical and legal barriers that are designed to limit access to scientific research articles to paying customers. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, shoold be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited.
