Guerilla Open Access Manifesto

Information is power. But like all power, there are those who want to
keep it for
themselves. The world's entire scientific and cultural heritage,
published over centuries
in books and journals, is increasingly being digitized and locked up by
a handful of
private corporations. Want to read the papers featuring the most famous
results of the
sciences? You'll need to send enormous amounts to publishers like Reed
Elsevier.

There are those struggling to change this. The Open Access Movement has
fought
valiantly to ensure that scientists do not sign their copyrights away
but instead ensure
their work is published on the Internet, under terms that allow anyone
to access it. But
even under the best scenarios, their work will only apply to things
published in the future.
Everything up until now will have been lost.

That is too high a price to pay. Forcing academics to pay money to read
the work of their
colleagues? Scanning entire libraries but only allowing the folks at
Google to read them?
Providing scientific articles to those at elite universities in the
First World, but not to
children in the Global South? It's outrageous and unacceptable.

"I agree," many say, "but what can we do? The companies hold the
copyrights, they
make enormous amounts of money by charging for access, and it's
perfectly legal =97
there's nothing we can do to stop them." But there is something we can,
something that's
already being done: we can fight back.

Those with access to these resources =97 students, librarians, scientists
=97 you have been
given a privilege. You get to feed at this banquet of knowledge while
the rest of the world
is locked out. But you need not =97 indeed, morally, you cannot =97 keep
this privilege for
yourselves. You have a duty to share it with the world. And you have:
trading passwords
with colleagues, filling download requests for friends.



Meanwhile, those who have been locked out are not standing idly by. You
have been
sneaking through holes and climbing over fences, liberating the
information locked up by
the publishers and sharing them with your friends.

But all of this action goes on in the dark, hidden underground. It's
called stealing or
piracy, as if sharing a wealth of knowledge were the moral equivalent of
plundering a
ship and murdering its crew. But sharing isn't immoral =97 it's a moral
imperative. Only
those blinded by greed would refuse to let a friend make a copy.

Large corporations, of course, are blinded by greed. The laws under
which they operate
require it =97 their shareholders would revolt at anything less. And the
politicians they
have bought off back them, passing laws giving them the exclusive power
to decide who
can make copies.

There is no justice in following unjust laws. It's time to come into the
light and, in the
grand tradition of civil disobedience, declare our opposition to this
private theft of public
culture.

We need to take information, wherever it is stored, make our copies and
share them with
the world. We need to take stuff that's out of copyright and add it to
the archive. We need
to buy secret databases and put them on the Web. We need to download
scientific
journals and upload them to file sharing networks. We need to fight for
Guerilla Open
Access.

With enough of us, around the world, we'll not just send a strong
message opposing the
privatization of knowledge =97 we'll make it a thing of the past. Will you
join us?
