Hello to you all I am just reading through a UK license for a well-known database from a well known American organisation (not named to save embarassment and litigation) and have just come across this wonderful sentence under the heading 'Authorised users' :- I quote Walk-ins may be considered Authorized Users if they are physically present at the Licensee's site. I think understand what this is meant to mean but as UK users it made us laugh!! To be fair a bit later on a walk-in is defined as 'A Patron not affiliated with the Licensee who is physically present at the licensee's site' but I was still trying to work out how you could walk-in without being physically present. Beam me up, Scotty.....
