Open access and the cost of academic journals

ABC Radio National in Australia did a 30 minute radio program in June (2012) entitled "Academic journals and the price of knowledge."  This podcast does an excellent job getting at the heart of the debate over journal prices and the responses from both sides about what to do.  Obviously open access can play a huge part in creating a solution, and that is addressed in the podcast

I do not believe that the podcast uses the word "copyright" at all, but clearly the licensing of content is a key part of the discussion.
