On the Huffington Post, Mike Eisen and I have asked Mr. Conyers to respond to the calls that he withdraw the embarrassing, anti-open access HR 801 (aka, the Fair Copyright in Research Works Act). We’ve gotten tons of responses from people who have followed our request to call Conyers and other co-sponsors to ask about this. I’m grateful for the help to stop this mistake of a bill. I’d be even more grateful if more were to join the strike to change the economy of influence in DC that produces this sort of silliness.
