Prof. Mike Carroll (a Creative Commons board member who oversees the Science Commons division) has also taken this position. He just published a paper in PLoS Biology, Why Full Open Access Matters, at http://www.plosbiology.org/article/info:doi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pbio.1001210.  Might be useful to include/cite in the resource pack.
