How Can Libraries, Publishers, and Vendors Work Together to Prevent Abuse?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What to do about http://sci-hub.org/ and other similar sites? They exist solely to illegally distribute subscription content to non-subscribers. The anonymous, unscrupulous people behind these sites search the web for proxy service loopholes which are then exploited to provide free access to all, in violation of subscription / site license agreements. How can librarians tell when their EZProxy service has been compromised? How should publishers communicate with libraries that have insecure access to their proxy services? What can hosting vendors do to help libraries and publishers respond to this kind of abuse?
