Re: Sage titles

For what it's worth, I've conducted a number of successful license
negotiations involving "free" online products.  I always call these
publishers fully expecting that they'll tell me to go pound sand, but that
hasn't happened yet.  I guess in most cases the publishers really do want
folks to use the product (perhaps in order to attract advertisers or build
up a marketable mailing list), and the ones I've dealt with so far have
been willing to make changes in the license where necessary.
