The old is new again

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The invention of copying 50 years ago offered convenience to readers and was a socially good thing. Preventing it would not have caused a major increase in individual paper subscription, then or now. Instead, without copying, readers would either have to go to a library or, more likely, not read at all. The same arguments appear today, this time about electronics.
