On this related issue, we've been in long-drawn-out negotiations with a
professor named Alan Zaslavsky about our concerns with the CIS license.
(We were directed to him last August when we wanted to negotiate the
click-through license.)  Our last communication with him seemed to imply
that the license would be rewritten and that the issues we had would be
addressed to our satisfaction.  It has been a little while since that last
communication and we didn't hear back on our last nudge.

And we have had access to the CIS website while these issues were being
worked out, but now the click-through is on the site which makes us even
more anxious to find out what's going to happen next...

UNM-Albuquerque is attempting to negotiate for access to the Current Index
to Statistics, which is produced by the Institute of Mathematical
Statistics and the ASA, and we are having the same problems (and received
exactly the same response to our inquiry).  According to our University
Purchasing Office, which has signature authority, ASA & IMS are
considering revising the contract. We hope they do take the concerns
seriously. Meanwhile, we have had temporary access while they discuss the
fact that we cannot legally sign their contract.
