That greatly depends on the publisher. I had one well known publisher assume the copyright even though I never signed a transfer agreement!

Thanks. In my experience, I have been assigned the copyrights to all my recent books automatically by my publishers. So I believe that publishers recognize this.

Dear list,
following up on the discussion about copyright and availability, I offer a recent blogpost by the European Commission (https://ec.europa.eu/futurium/en/content/fair-open-occess-and-future-scientific-publishing)

"""
* Fair open access could also be seen as a question of ownership. Who owns publications? Who has the copyright? Probably authors. As a matter of principle, copyright should therefore probably not be signed over to other actors such as publishers. Therefore, open access publications should be licenced in adequate ways. Creative Commons licences could be a good way to do this systematically.

Note that you can leave comments on the page, which will actually be read by the relevant people in Brussels, so this is a nice opportunity to make your voice heard.

Best wishes
Sebastian
