Twelve days with a grateful heart: proxy servers

This one is short and sweet. Apparently there's been a big debate in some of the science blogs about the legality of trading pdfs of papers.  I haven't followed along very closely, but today I'm grateful for the proxy server through the University of Texas' library, so I didn't have to pay $70 for my light holiday reading.

Did you also post using the blogger app and discover that it dithers the hell out of your images?

Anyway, I think it's silly to worry about trading pdfs. They charge authors for the ability to publish, so it's not like you're stealing from the people who actually do work.
