ACM commits more evil – please act!

The previous episode of the ACM saga had a powerful organization bully a young impressionable PhD student into deleting his fully legal web pages under an implied threat of legal action if he did not comply.

This weeks episode has ACM fighting against a US government initiative for open access to research papers supported by government funding! This is a highly important initiative. ACM is trying to kill it so they, and other greedy scientific publishers, can continue to make money on those papers that you paid for with your tax money.

Read all about it in US Gov Requests Feedback on Open Access – ACM Gets it Wrong (Again). Then please lend your voice — in favor of the US government initiative and against the ACM — in the manner suggested by Naty in the blog post.

And spread the word, before it is too late!
