A new Lithuanian law on science requires online access for publicly-funded research. It was adopted by parliament on April 30 and took effect on May 12. Read the new law in Lithuanian or Google's English.
Thanks to Emilija Banionyte and Rima Kupryte for hand-translating the section on research access:
Update (6/12/09). Emilija Banionyte tells me that in Lithuanian "to make public" suggests "free of charge" more often than not. However, the term doesn't always carry that implication and it's still too early to tell how lawyers and judges will interpret it.
