Why put links to "paid for" papers

Once again, a press release has a link to a paper that you have to pay to read. No less than $30!

For a US Government lab, this is pretty rich.

It really doesn't make sense to put out this sort of thing.

Maybe there will be an accessible copy over on the password protected area of EurekAlert! But I am not holding my breath.

in reference to:

"A copy of the Nano Letters paper “Direct Chemical Vapor Deposition of Graphene on Dielectric Surfaces” can be viewed here: http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/nl9037714"
- Graphene Films Clear Major Fabrication Hurdle « Berkeley Lab News Center (view on Google Sidewiki)
