Detailed summary of the hearing on the Conyers bill

Richard M. Jones, House Hearing on "Fair Copyright in Research Works Act", FYI: The AIP Bulletin of Science Policy News, September 19, 2008.  (Thanks to Garrett Eastman.)

Comment.  This is the most detailed summary I've seen yet of the hearing on the Conyers bill.  If you want even more detail than this, you'll have to watch the video of the hearing, which is OA, or pay to read a third-party transcript.  I'm hoping that the government will release an OA version of the transcript --and if it does, I'll blog it.
