It looks like this is indeed just another non-mandatory "mandate." The language about each faculty member automatically granting Princeton a non-exclusive license to "exercise any and all copyrights in his or her scholarly articles published in any medium," etc., is then followed by this important qualifier: "Upon the express direction of a Faculty member, the Provost or the Provost's designate will waive or suspend application of this license for a particular article authored or co-authored by that Faculty member." So in other words, it's not an OA mandate, but rather an OA "mandate." You're bound by it unless you ask not to be, in which case you're not. --- Rick Anderson Assoc.
