Draft EU constitution supports free circulation of scientific knowledge. Here's the draft text of Article III-146(1), released June 16, 2004:

The Union's action shall aim to strengthen its scientific and technological bases, by achieving a European research area in which researchers, scientific knowledge and technology circulate freely, and encourage it to become more competitive, including in its industry, while promoting all the research activities deemed necessary by virtue of other Chapters of the Constitution.

(Thanks to Research Research.) (PS: This is very likely “free as in speech” rather than “free as in beer”. But so far, so good.) [Open Access News]


this is good.
