Re: model licensing principles

I've found the model licenses developed by John Cox et al to be very
helpful.  I've also used portions of the CIC licenses and found them to be
extremely helpful.  Most publishers are reasonable people, and when I can
show examples of what others are using, I've been able to reach an
equitable agreement in the majority of cases.

I've come across various model licensing principles.  I'm wondering how
useful the principles are to librarians who are actually negotiating
licensing agreements.  Also, does any one model stick out in particular?
