RE: license jurisdiction related to pricing

Isn't that kinda like rewarding "bad behavior" for those recalcitrant
publishers who refuse to change the jurisdiction?

I'd hate to see it become the "standard" model if there are publishers who
already are willing to change the jurisdiction upon request.

I know there are some publishers who refuse outright to change the
jurisdiction, and some libraries that can't subscribe to their products
because a higher authority *requires* that the jurisdiction be changed, and
something needs to be done to break that logjam, but.......

Subject: license jurisdiction related to pricing

The issue of jurisdiction comes up frequently in licensing.  Does anyone
have experience with a two-tier pricing model designed to address that
issue?  That is, lower price if you agree to jurisdiction of the
publisher's choice, slightly higher if you insist on your own?  It might
be a way to find a win-win situation, if the price differential were not

Would such a possibility be appealing to librarians and publishers?
