OSR090 Recht und Gesetz(e) und Anderes [DE]

In der Zwischenzeit seit der letzten Episode haben sich einige Sachen getan, manches davon erfreulich, manches wiederum weniger erfreulich. Wir schauen mal was so hängengeblieben ist; vor allem geht es um die Reformbemühungen des Urheberrechts-Wissensgesellschafts-Gesetzes (UrhWissG), den Rechtsstreit um Sci-Hub und den Widerstand gegen Elsevier. Viel Spaß!
