Bill Gates and other major investors put $52.6 million into site sharing unauthorized copies of academic papers

from TechDirt

From March 23: As we've noted, the main reason the Sci-Hub site is so popular with academics is not because it is free – researchers generally have free access to papers anyway – but because it is so easy to use. Among other things, it provides a centralized store of a huge number of papers – 58 million at the time of writing – that can be downloaded with a single click. But an interesting post on the Green Tea and Velociraptors blog points out Sci-Hub's holdings are beaten by the total number of papers available on the ResearchGate site, which has 12 million members. more
