RE: Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Announcement

Yes, we have already gotten complaints from our patrons who are really
unhappy about this very obtrustive logo/watermark that accompanies some LWW
articles.  We tell them to print the html full-text version of the article,
which makes them even more unhappy because the html version ends up with a
lot more printed pages than the PDF.

And many LWW online journals through Ovid now feature a big, loud,
obstructive LWW logo and copyright warning stamped smack in the middle of
all pages of all PDF articles in selected journals.  The logo/warning
readily interferes with the text and makes reading very difficult.
Printing off a copy only worsesens the obstruction of the text. ASAIO
Journal, Transplantation, Journal of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, and
Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology are a few examples.
