Just a comment: I did not have any problems taking down the .pdf file of de Assis’ paper. The message from de Assis came at about the same time as the message giving a complete listing of what was in the same issue of the paper.

Dear Geoff and colleagues,
I am one of the section editors of Zoologia. I forwarded your message to our chief editor, Walter Boeger, who will check what can be done
re DOI and the "security" issue. Thanks for your comments.
However, we also have our points. Zoologia belongs to the Scielo system. As stated in its home page, SciELO - Scientific Electronic Library Online
is a model for cooperative electronic publishing of scientific journals on the Internet. Especially conceived to meet the scientific communicatio
needs of developing countries, particularly Latin America and the Caribbean countries, it provides an efficient way to assure universal visibility
and accessibility to their scientific literature, contributing to overcome the phenomena known as 'lost science'.
As such, Scielo provides public and free access to dozens of scientific periodicals. My point is - better to have a somewhat faulty DOI (most probably
a temporary problem) and irritating securitiy issues for free scientific information than to pay up to US $50.00 to download a paper.
By the way, thanks to Walter and his editorial staff, Zoologia is passing through a very fast internationalization process. Though its ISI impact factor
is still low, I am sure it will be really competitive in the near future. Please visit our site at Zoologia: an international Journal for Zoology - (www.scielo.br/zool<http://www.scielo.br/zool>),
check it out and consider submitting your own papers! They will be well treated :-)

Two comments about this journal, Zoologia.
1) The DOI number José sent out does not work, simply because the
journal is not up to date with its entries to the DOI registration
agency (I have logged an error report). The whole point of a DOI is for
quickly going to the article online. Please check a DOI supplied by a
journal is functioning before sending it to the list, and tell us if it
is not. It might be functioning in a couple of weeks, or a couple of
months, but that's no use to me now when the author has just alerted me
about the paper. It should be functioning at time of publication (If you
want it the plain url is:
http://submission.scielo.br/index.php/zool/article/view/37306 ). I
also note this journal wants to track usage of papers - the way NOT to
do that is to publish DOI that are not functioning.
2) They publish pdf's which are secured and not copyable - you can't
select text and paste it. This is highly irritating and quite pointless
- all one needs to do is print the article, scan and OCR it, and bingo -
there is the text available for quoting and other legitimate annotatory
& databasing purposes. Why the need to 'secure' it?
