Hope this isn't out of scope but I came across a page on US copyright 
law (I think) which suggested that several aspects of scientific 
papers couldn't be copyrighted. (It didn't mention science, but 
"procedures" and "ideas"). I have blogged this:
I would value any informed comment, even if it is depressing.
