    As it stands, they don’t get paid when you pay for reading it anyways. They themselves pay to publish it to a journal, the journal then sells it to you.

    The scientists aren’t paid by people reading their science, they are paid by grants, for doing the science in the first place.

    I wholeheartedly support academic “piracy”, it only hurts the gatekeepers.
