In a lawsuit filed by Elsevier, one of the largest academic publishers, Sci-Hub.org is facing millions of dollars in damages. However, the site has no intentions of backing down and will continue its fight to keep access to scientific knowledge free and open. "I think Elsevier's business model is itself illegal," Sci-Hub founder Alexandra Elbakyan says. With a net income of more than $1 billion Elsevier is one of the largest academic publishers in the world. The company has the rights to many academic publications where scientists publish their latest breakthroughs. Most of these journals are locked behind paywalls, which makes it impossible for less fortunate researchers to access them. Sci-Hub.org is one of the main sites that circumvents this artificial barrier. Founded by Alexandra Elbakyan, a researcher born and graduated in Kazakhstan, its main goal is to provide the less privileged with access to science and knowledge. The service is nothing like the average pirate site. It wasnâ€™t started to share the latest Hollywood blockbusters, but to gain access to critical knowledge that researchers require to do their work. â€œWhen I was working on my research project, I found out that all research papers I needed for work were paywalled. I was a student in Kazakhstan at the time and our university was not subscribed to anything,â€ Alexandra tells TF. After Googling for a while Alexandra stumbled upon various tools and services to bypass the paywalls. With her newly gained knowledge, she then started participating in online forums where other researchers requested papers. When she noticed how grateful others were for the papers she shared, Alexandra decided to automate the process by developing software that could allow anyone to search for and access papers. Thatâ€™s when Sci-Hub was born, back in 2011. â€œThe software immediately became popular among Russian researchers. There was no big idea behind the project, like â€˜make all information freeâ€™ or something like that. We just needed to read all these papers to do our research,â€ Alexandra. â€œNow, the goal is to collect all research papers ever published, and make them free,â€ she adds. Of course Alexandra knew that the website could lead to legal trouble. In that regard, the lawsuit filed by Elsevier doesnâ€™t come as a surprise. However, she is more than willing to fight for the right to access knowledge, as others did before her. â€œThanks to Elsevierâ€™s lawsuit, I got past the point of no return. At this time I either have to prove we have the full right to do this or risk being executed like other â€˜piratesâ€™,â€ she says, naming Aaron Swartz as an example. â€œIf Elsevier manages to shut down our projects or force them into the darknet, that will demonstrate an important idea: that the public does not have the right to knowledge. We have to win over Elsevier and other publishers and show that what these commercial companies are doing is fundamentally wrong.â€ The idea that a commercial outfit can exploit the work of researchers, who themselves are often not paid for their contributions, and hide it from large parts of the academic world, is something she does not accept. â€œEveryone should have access to knowledge regardless of their income or affiliation. And thatâ€™s absolutely legal. Also the idea that knowledge can be a private property of some commercial company sounds absolutely weird to me.â€ Most research institutions in Russia, in developing countries and even in the U.S. and Europe canâ€™t afford expensive subscriptions. This means that they canâ€™t access crucial research, including biomedical research such as cancer studies. Elsevierâ€™s ScienceDirect paywall So aside from the public at large, Sci-Hub is also an essential tool for academics. In fact, some researchers use the site to access their own publications, because these are also locked behind a paywall. â€œThe funniest thing I was told multiple times by researchers is that they have to download their own published articles from Sci-Hub. Even authors do not have access to their own work,â€ Alexandra says. Instead of seeing herself as the offender, Alexandra believes that the major academic publishers are the ones who are wrong. â€œI think Elsevierâ€™s business model is itself illegal,â€ she says, pointing to article 27 of the UN declaration on human rights which reads that â€œeveryone has the right freely to participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific advancement and its benefits.â€ The paywalls of Elsevier and other publishers violate this right, she believes. The same article 27 also allows authors to protect their works, but the publishers are not the â€˜authors,â€™ they merely exploit the copyrights. Alexandra insists that her website is legal and hopes that future changes in copyright law will reflect this. As for the Elsevier lawsuit, sheâ€™s not afraid to fight for her rights and already offers a public confession right here. â€œI developed the Sci-Hub.org website where anyone can download paywalled research papers by request. Also I uploaded at least half of more than 41 million paywalled papers to the LibGen database and worked actively to create mirrors of it. â€œI am not afraid to say this, because when you do the right thing, why should you hide it?â€ she concludes. â€” Note: Sci-Hub is temporarily using the sci-hub.club domain name. The .org will be operational again next week. https://torrentfreak.com/sci-hub-tears-down-academias-illegal-copyright-paywalls-150627/
Dear friends and acquaintances, on February 26 24FPS will turn 9 years old. Unfortunately we will never make it to our 10th anniversary, because after much thinking, debating and testing out different recipes, we reached the following undebatable conclusion: our community has become inactive, and it's time to shut down. The signals are clear: very little new material, few downloads and almost zero posts in the forums, plus a remarkable inability to collect funds to pay for our server. February 26th will be our last day live. We will try to preserve some of our own production, especially our original subtitles. Those details, plus grievances, discussions and farewells we can do in our forums. So long, The 24FPS staff
Lady Gaga says it 'means more than anything' that her boyfriend cries when she sings. The 28-year-old performer has been dating actor Taylor Kinney since 2011, when they met on the set of her YoÃ¼ And I promo. They prefer not to live their life in the limelight, although Gaga has given a little insight into their relationship in a new interview. 'What has made me so happy with Taylor is that he fiercely loves me from the inside out,' she told Times 2. 'He's very supportive of everything that I do. He's the first man that I have dated that, when I sing onstage, he cries. That means more to me than anything.' Although she's toned it down a lot of late, Gaga is still known for wearing outlandish outfits. She's donned a dress made of meat in the past and a coat made of Kermit the Frog puppets, but Taylor isn't fazed by any of that. 'He is completely blind to the way that I dress, my creative process as it is ' he knows me as the Italian-American girl my mother and father gave birth to,' she gushed. The star also opened up about her career beginnings, and what she hopes will act as words of warning for other newcomers. Much as she was desperate to make it, Gaga went through a lot to become a success. She was treated badly by men who propositioned her, something she wants younger people to know they shouldn't put up with. 'I experienced a lot. I had really awful experiences with men in the studio. Made me very uncomfortable,' she recalled. 'I didn't feel like I was being cherished for my vocal talents, but [was] seen more as someone to take advantage of. It is very hard, this business. And there are a lot of sharks. And I wish to set a good example. That's why I'm so honest about those things, 'cause I don't want to give the impression that this was handed to me on a silver platter. It was certainly not like that.'
