Subject: Support the Open Access Movement: Stop the Research Works Act! - The Petition Site

A recently introduced bill, H.R. 3699, the Research Works Act, would seriously threaten public access to federally funded research.

The bill would not only restrict internet access to articles published in scholarly journals and books; it would also severely hamper Creative Commons content.
