Hello Michael, in response to your enquiry: How common is this? seems to depend on the publisher, at the same time it also seems to be an increasing trend. Is it incumbent upon the person arranging access with Catchword (or whomever) to determine whether a license must be signed? see below. Is there any convenient way of determining whether a license is required? short answer seems to be no, and it does seem to be a "buyer beware" culture ie one needs to make it part of the routine process to check if licence is required to be signed.
