As I said in the 'cast, the Wellcome Trust is particularly firm about papers they publish being made available through an open access channel. In fact, their FAQ addresses the copyright claims of the AAP like this: "An author's obligations to the Wellcome Trust will therefore, in almost all cases, pre-date any agreement with a journal."

I'm sorry I couldn't make it last night, especially after submitting a couple of things, but things were generally not good yesterday. I hope to listen to the recording this evening so I can be all jealous of the discussion!
