Funders, publishers, institutions and others are increasingly moving towards policies that are aimed at sharing research.
The degree of openness — and other stipulations in those policies — vary quite considerably, so some sort of conflict between policies of a researcher's institution, funder and publisher or between those of collaborators is to be expected.
How much should a researcher be worried about these sorts of conflicts? Are there examples where sharing policies that differ have turned out to conflict in a way that actually inhibits the sharing that they were intended to enable?
