Re: A COUNTER concern.

I would like to point out that intelligent use of OpenURL 1.0 and
link-server technology offers a way to measure some types of usage, even
in the situation where the articles are used from thousands of
repositories around the world. The point is that links contained in the
articles do not change, they can be pointed at usage-measuring link
servers, and can contain information about "referring entity", i.e. the
identity of the article containing the links.

So to sum up, measuring usage from unknown providers is entirely feasible.
Please contact me directly for technical details.
