On the purpose of copyright transfer agreements

For Open Access Week last year, Alex Holcombe made a video in which an academic publisher explains why researchers have to sign copyright transfer agreements for the scholarly articles they wrote.

This video is featured on the Main Page of Wikimedia Commons today under Media of the day. I tried to embed a YouTube copy, but for some reason, I couldn’t get WordPress to accept iframe or object tags today.
