German survey of open access issues

Ulf von Rauchhaupt, Keine Maut für den Geist, Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung, October 19, 2003. A good introduction to open access for the general reader, touching on the PLoS Biology launch, the Wellcome Trust statement, and the prospect of open access rather than commercialization for cultural heritage collections. Also see Klaus Graf's comments on this article, including his discussion of the cultural heritage problem (here and here).
