The Chronicle of Higher Education reports that MIT and Elsevier, the publishing giant, have come to an agreement that allows MIT to use some of the material from Elsevier's journals in MIT's OpenCourseWare project. This agreement will presumable save MIT a huge headache in heading off copyright concerns. The Chronicle also points out that the International Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers has agreed to a new policy that will allow limited use of copyrighted material from such professional journals.
