Panelists will discuss the legal, moral, technological and business implications of the theft and use of pirated scholarly content. With no one cause or culprit, there is no single solution to building paths to honest and easy access to content across multiple sites with varied creators, distributors, and users. Scholarly communication benefits from a varied ecosystem of information. Minimizing theft requires connections and cooperation among many stakeholders in scholarly communication including researchers, users, publishers, hosting vendors, librarians, and cyber security experts. Scholarly communication continues to adjust to become more relevant and Innovative but are not always as fast as desired. Join the session to hear from the panelists and discuss future solutions.
