Wellcome Trust getting serious about open access

I am not sure if you have to be a “Nature” subscriber to view the news blog entry below. The gist of it is, the Wellcome Trust is putting some teeth into its requirement that articles published based on research it funds must be open access within 6 months of publication. If not, they will withhold their grant money. This will apply to articles published from 1 October 2009 onward.
