OUP CD-ROM license


How do you folks treat a CD-ROM product which has a card in the box saying
"If you accept the terms set out below then open the jewel case.  By so
doing, you agree to be bound by such license terms."  Then the terms say
we have the right to "load and store the Licensed Material on a single
computer..."  The Oxford University Press product "Margaret Thatcher:
Complete Public Statements 1945-1990 on CD-ROM" is the example.

We bought the product with the intention of letting it circulate, but I do
not believe we can.  Some staff think that since we do not have to
actually sign the license agreement, it is acceptable to go ahead and put
it in the circulating collection.  What are other institutions doing in
such cases?
