Remarks presented before the National Academies Committee on the Impact of Copyright Policy on Innovation in the Digital Era

Stodden, Victoria C.

Thank you for the opportunity to address this committee at the National Academy of Science. You are uniquely positioned to contend with the barriers to innovation that arise through the impact of copyright law on scientific integrity. In my remarks I hope to convince you of the urgent need for the Committee to redress these barriers directly by recommending open licensing for scientific works, in particular code and data. Copyright law works counter to scientific progress, with enormous impact on innovation both inside and outside the scientific enterprise.
