"Make all research results CC-BY"

While I do not agree in details on the statement made by Klaus, I agree with his intentions, and happy to propagate the mantra, like others did before me:
    MAKE ALL RESEARCH RESULTS CC-BY

The details I disagree with:
  • no need for shouting; we can all perfectly well read it in lower case
  • CC-BY is not required; any open data license will do

Now, I know some of you disagree, and I understand the costs for maintaining and curating a database. But, if all research results would be freely available, these costs can be shared by the community, and we could all stand on the shoulders of giants.
