Publisher opposition to FRPAA

81 publishers have sent an open letter to Congress opposing the Federal Research Public Access Act (FRPAA).

Here's the press release <http://goo.gl/Uy9ox> and here's the letter itself <http://goo.gl/HOCmW>. The letter was organized by the Association of American Publishers' Professional and Scholarly Publishing Division (AAP/PSP) <http://publishers.org/psp/> and the DC Principles Coalition <http://www.dcprinciples.org/>.

For background on FRPAA, see my article <http://goo.gl/4XaK6> in the March issue of the SPARC Open Access Newsletter and my reference page <http://bit.ly/hoap-frpaa> at the Harvard Open Access Project.

Right now I'm just posting the news. In the comment section below, I'll add some responses.
