What is the best licensing framework for scholarly material?

A week ago, over 80 organisations from around the world, including many publishers, signed up to a letter to STM, the International Association of Scientific, Medical and Technical Publishers, calling on it to withdraw its new set of model licences for academic content.

SPARC Europe was one of the first signatories.
The following briefing document to SPARC Europe Members explains a little more about the topic and why we signed the letter to STM.
