Obama and Copyright

I haven’t been so worried about the Conyers bill to end the NIH Public Access policy because I figured even in the unlikely event it got through Congress, Obama wouldn’t sign it. But then I read this post by Seth Johnson about “stacking” of the Justice Department with veteran copyright defenders. I’m still not all that worried, but I’m a bit more so now and think we should really ramp up the pressure to make sure this doesn’t get to Obama in the first place.

    Well, having Harold Varmus as part of his top scientific advisory panel certainly gives me some reassurance.
