An Anonymous Challenge to the Copyright Clearance Center
A letter was recently forwarded to me. It was written anonymously and then distributed to various individuals with a request that its content be "discussed in a public forum." So I'm going to discuss it here, though maybe not quite in the way its author or authors intended.
The letter, titled "Open and Anonymous Letter to Members of the Publishing Industry, Content Consumers and Other Information Industry Members Regarding the Copyright Clearance Center (CCC)" raises two interesting issues, one intentionally and the other, apparently, unintentionally.
