Response to “Is CC BY the Best Open Access License?”
In the Open Access (OA) movement and in the publishing world there is a debate over the necessity or usefulness of the Creative Commons (CC) licenses—most importantly CC BY. Misconceptions and misunderstandings are frequent in this debate. I would like to reflect on this question, and in particular on the “Point and Counterpoint” article in the first issue of JLSC (Graf, K, Thatcher, S. (2012). Point & Counterpoint: Is CC BY the Best Open Access License? Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication, 1
(1), eP1043. http:// dx.doi.org/10.7710/2162-3309.1043)
