This presentation will focus on the opportunities that repositories and publishers interested in Open Science could seize in order to solve a number of legal shortcomings. In particular the presentation will identify a number of measures that these platforms could easily adopt in terms of licences, licence choice and uploading procedures which will facilitate their role as enablers of OS best practices. A selection of legal supporting materials developed within Open Science projects will be showcased.
