Academic publishers and DRM

Pamela Jones has an interesting blog entry regarding academic publishers and DRM. Her entry contains an article by Roy Bixler and one by Bruce Barton. I especially like Barton’s article since I’ve often fantasized about the future of academic publishing like Barton does at the end of his article and like him I see a future where a network of academic peers takes over whatever functions a publisher provides once the notion that publishing involves “producing print copies” has been removed from the equation.
