> How do you suggest getting around copyright issues?
LIke Eric said - by posting pre-prints. I think this should be legal.

Note also these two clauses in the ACM Copyright Agreement:

1. "Copyright to the Work (...)  is hereby transferred to the ACM (...) effective as of the date 
of this agreement" - which means that until you sign the agreement you can do whatever you want 
with your work, including posting it on arXiv. This does not help with any papers published in 
the past but I suppose it's worth noting for the future papers.

2. "Permitted Uses (...) Post the Accepted Version of the Work on (...) any repository legally 
mandated by an agency funding the research on which the Work is based." So if anyone manages to 
convice their university that they require all published papers to be posted to arXiv, then it 
will be legal to post the accepted versions of the paper on arXiv :-)
