The story of Sci-Hub presents a good opportunity to review the gross anatomy of scholarly publishing. Those of us in academia, whether we are faculty or support them, know that it is the researchers who investigate, write, and review academic research papers. We know that they do this for free. We know that publishers package these products and charge exorbitant prices for them. And we know that libraries pay these prices for access. Those who are lucky enough to be affiliated with a research library can access much of this content.
