The parable of the farmers and the Teleporting Duplicator

Addendum

Opponents of open access academic publishing may say that this parable is hyperbole. It is, but only in one respect. When people do not have access to food they die quickly. When they don’t have access to science they die more slowly.

Note this parable works for any incumbent pre-Internet exclusive distribution network or content.
