Summary:

"There’s a problem with science, and it’s slowing us down. The problem, in a nutshell, is this: Most research is funded with public means, yet when the results are published, that same public often has to pay again to be able to access it. This limits the number of people who can use research outcomes and put them to good use, and goes directly against the reasons for funding the research in the first place."
