I really enjoyed reading your blog post this week and liked your take on the topic. I agree with you that there are many advantages and disadvantages of open access.
However, you conclude that you think the advantages outweigh the disadvantages for open access. Do you not think that open-access will encourage people to take content producers work and pass it off as their own?
Furthermore, the majority of content producers spend a great amount of time researching and writing their work, do you not think that they should be rewarded for this more? Personally, I like the idea of a paywall with a limit to the articles you can read every month before you have to pay. In my opinion, this would almost be a perfect solution for students such as ourselves as we would not have to pay for the time we don’t use articles.
