However, as pointed out in an article at Times Higher Education, a clever
clause in the author agreement permits resale of this article:

This made think back to my blog post about the labyrinthine licensing
language at the Elsevier Open Access journal Ampersand.  I went back to
check the license agreement, and guess what appears in the “Rights Granted
to Elsevier” section?

*The exclusive right to publish and distribute an article, and to grant
rights to others, including for commercial purposes.*
