http://au.wiley.com/WileyCDA/PressRelease/pressReleaseId-104537.html John Wiley & Sons, Inc., today announced revised licensing arrangements for proprietary journals published under the Wiley Open Access program. The journals will adopt the Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) licence which allows commercial use of published articles. The Wiley Open Access portfolio also includes journals published with society partners, many of which will similarly transfer to the Creative Commons Attribution licence. Wiley is responding to recent developments in funder and government policies and supports the sustainable evolution of scientific publishing. The change will be implemented immediately.

What is copyright? All original work - journal articles, music, essays, photographs, user guides, videos and PowerPoint presentations - has an author or creator who owns the copyright of the work. It is important not to be frightened of or intimidated by copyright. Copyright gives authors certain rights to control the use of their creations, including distributing copies to the public.
This guide is based on UK law. It was last updated in August 2008. The skill, creative effort, time and money invested in producing material may be wasted if it is open to other parties to use or exploit that material without paying the creator. Copyright gives the author of certain types of material rights to control the use or commercial exploitation of the work that he or she has created.
