As Mounce says, Elsevier's action here in asking people to pay for open
access papers may not be illegal, but it is not something that researchers
will be happy about.

*There are two ways to deal with this.* Either individual researchers must
start reading contracts in detail - not something many will undertake given
their lack of time and limited legal knowledge. *Or the open access
community must create some kind of central body that can draw up model
contracts and is prepared to enforce them - in the courts, if necessary.*
