RE: Journal of Immunology is basing its 2002 subscription price

I don't think this a correct reading.  In the definitions, "Licensed
Materials" is defined as "Electronic versions of the issues..."  So the
last sentence of 2.1 only refers to the electronic, not to the print.  
The mention of print here simply emphasizes that you get a copy of the
print version along with the "Licensed Materials".

I find even more interesting the appearance that the license excludes
interlibrary lending from the print versions.  Section 2.1 reads:

"2.1. The Publisher hereby grants to the Licensee a non-exclusive and
non-transferable right to give Authorized Users access to the Licensed
Materials via a Secure Network (and via print editions of The Journal of
Immunology published by Publisher during the calendar year(s) of the term
of this Agreement) for the purposes of research, teaching and private
study, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Any use of
the Licensed Materials not specifically authorized in this Agreement is

If I read this correctly, the intent is to restrict access to print as
well as electronic access to Authorized Users.  The agreement makes no
reference to interlibrary loan, which is thus apparently excluded from
authorized use.  If this is not the intent, there's no reason to discuss
provision of the print version to Authorized Users (as they would have
unrestricted access to print along with everyone else).
