>From Catchword's Guidelines for Use, found at http://giorgio.catchword.com/guidelines.htm : "Institutional subscribers are not normally required to sign a contract. If you require a formal licensing agreement please contact the appropriate publisher directly. The journals on CatchWord's system are published by a number of different publishers as indicated in our title list. These guidelines are intended to cover all of the journals on the system. Any variations to these guidelines should be negotiated directly with each publisher concerned." To me this sounds like if "you," the subscriber, require a formal agreement you should contact the publisher. I would expect that the publishers who have established a relationship with Catchword have reviewed and accepted Catchword's Guidelines for Use. I would think that if a publisher wanted to impose more restrictive terms and conditions it would be their responsibility to contact the subscriber. Why would a library search out more restrictive terms if the publisher has already provided access to the content?
