In my post in response to Michael Carroll, I neglected to include the link to a blog post on the relationship between OA and print sales. It's "Cory Doctorow Meets the Giant Behemoth" at http://pubfrontier.com/2007/12/13/cory-doctorow-meets-the-giant-behemoth/ The topic is why OA literature cannot succeed if ebooks do; it's either/or.
