I provided an answer to this question 'Consequences for publishing final version PDF, in violation of publisher policies?' which was closed for being a duplicate of this question: 'How often do publishers sue researchers for copyright infringement for putting their articles on a personal website?' I believe we can reopen the first question for the following reasons:
- Question 1 asks a more general question while Question 2 asks specifically about copyright infringement.
- Question 2 is specifically about a specific action, authors being sued for copyright infringement, while question 1 is much more general
- Question 2 is about publishing specifically on Author's personal website, while Question 1 is much more generally about publishing online (author's website, but also online repositories such as academia.edu, researchgate and ArXiv.org)
I believe for these reasons, Question 1 should be re-opened and my question is now focused when this type of situation arises.
My Question: If an answer is located within a 'closed' question for being a duplicate, should the member delete the answer in the duplicate question and relocate the answer (perhaps modified) in the first accepted question?
