Design Management Journal -- Free!

Folks interested in the business aspects of design inevitably cross paths with the Design Management Institute, and it's publication, the Design Management Journal.

Now, you could fork over $5 an article, or get a subscription, to read the goodies within. But I believe I've found a backdoor that allows free access to the content (not in published form, but in raw text).

Backdoor, or just someone's subscription through ProQuest? (I didn't click on the link to investigate further)

Completely irresponsible.

Well, thank goodness we have Ron Zeno to save us from our moral turpitude.

And: backdoor, via UC Berkeley's very publicly accessible "Pathfinder" library catalog.

Any time, Peter.

Please tell how your actions are in any way resposible. I'm sure your potential clients would be interested.

I agree w/ Ron.
If this content wasn't meant to be freely accessed, why should it be? Because someone forgot to lock that back door? Would seem to be more responsible to send a note to the webmaster there just letting them know.

Seems like you are handing out keys to your neighbor's house and inviting the public to help themselves. I'm no lawyer but this dosen't smell legal.

This is the sort of thing that can get you in a lot of legal trouble. This material is copyrighted and I believe you would be the violator by posting this. If you had half a sense, you would remove this quickly. I am sure Berkley isn't going to be happy.

Sounds like you got exactly what you deserve. To respond to your magazine theory.. you would still be stealing. And before you blast ProQuest for not securing their site, you need to check your morals and your facts.
