Class action lawsuit with UnCover


R Hadden Writes:Rex Dalton wrote a short article in Nature, Vol. 406, August 17, 2000,
page 664, \"Deal on Reprints Could Mean Royalties for Scientists.\" It
describes the class action lawsuit with UnCover (now owned by Ingenta, a
British company), a document delivery supply company, over providing copies
of articles where the copyright is not owned by a journal, but is retained
by the individual author. The case will have a significant impact on
selling individual articles electronically without the author\'s permission.
Other observers think the agreement will hinder the exchange and
distribution of scientific information. Authors who retained rights to
their work may be eligible for compensation and may be eligible to join the
lawsuit, and further information can be found at:
