I identify with the AAAS who oppose such a move.  Of course the industrialists want it: grab someone else's unprotected idea and throw as much money at it as it takes to convert it into a brand new product which then hits the market.

Dear Colleagues:

An extraordinary article in today's New York Times by Lisa Friedman, outlines how a proposed U.S. E.P.A. policy "...would require that scientists disclose all of their raw data, including confidential medical records, before the agency could consider an academic study's conclusions."


According to the Times, the change is opposed by most scientists - including the American Association for the Advancement of Science.  But it appears to have the support of many industrial groups (eg. chemical companies).

Could this be an example of science being challenged by dubiously-motivated 'pro-open' claims ?
