Abstract: 2013 saw journals retracting research articles at an unprece- dented rate and Harvard’s biggest-ever cheating scandal. Now there’s a seismic shift in academic book publishing practices worldwide plus entirely new models for textbook delivery and streaming TV programs. Meanwhile, Australia, New Zealand and the U. S. are trying to enforce their Copyright Alert Sys- tems while Europe remains largely enforcement-free. So the question is: what’s next in the world of international intellectual property?
