Call me skeptical, but I can't get excited about this when the EC is (at the same time) trying to sneak ACTA in through the back door via a trade agreement with Canada. There was even an article about that here (a few days ago).

I'll be convinced that the EC is serious about "open access" when I see a fat pink thing with a curly tail flying paat my window.
