Along these lines, there are quite a few vertebrate palaeontologists
who just go right ahead and make all their publications freely
available on their own web-sites, irrespective of what restrictions
the publisher says they're imposing. There's a list of such pages on

Does anyone out there know of any case where an author has bee hassled
by a publisher for doing this? And if so, were they merely asked to
take down the relevant articles, or threatened with stronger action?
