Young J R. Elsevier Agrees to Let MIT Use Bits of Journal Articles Online. 2008 The Chronicle of Higher Education

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology announced that it has reached a deal with Elsevier to allow a limited amount of material from its journals to be used in MIT’s OpenCourseWare project, winning a major challenge for colleges that want to post lecture materials on the Web. The vice president and general counsel at Elsevier, declared that the company has also agreed to a new policy on copyright, set up by the International Association of Scientific, Technical, & Medical Publishers, allowing any college to post small bits of journal material online, even if the policy doesn’t allow quite as much as the deal with MIT does.
