That's an extraordinarily skimpy article. The full survey report (uncited
by the article) is at

It's worth reviewing because it includes almost 15,000 responses from the
83,000 authors who published in Taylor and Frances journals in 2011.  It's
certainly biased (as are all surveys) because it only includes those who've
already chosen that publisher, but still a good read.

There's much more detail in the the survey than just a laundry list of
licenses, including questions about authors views on various types of
reuse, importance of data vs text, etc.  It includes not only author
preferences but also author answers about their institutions policies and
those of their funders.

It's a 30 page report and includes an additional 16 pages containing the
complete text of the survey.
