I would suggest that your mistake was in asking the publisher to interpret the language for you. Instead, I think you should have let the ambiguity work in your favor -- come to a good-faith understanding, within your institution, of what "systematic" means, and then abide by it. "Good faith" is essential -- I'm not suggesting that you should use ambiguity as an excuse to take undue liberty. But you can be sure that if you ask the publisher to intepret the terms of the license, the interpretation given will be strict. And then you're stuck with a documented exchange. ------------- Rick Anderson Director of Resource Acquisition The University Libraries University of Nevada, Reno "That wasn't a Freudian slip; 1664 No. Virginia St. it was a Jungian slip."
