Clarification on SERU proposal


While that sounds like an easy approach, there is a significant 
difference between SERU as a common understanding jointly 
developed by librarians and publishers and a click-through 
agreement that is considered one-sided.  Some libraries must 
treat click-throughs as a standard agreement which means they 
must still handle legal documents.  To avoid confusion we 
distinguish SERU as a "common understanding" rather than "terms 
and conditions" or an "agreement" which have a legal connotation. 
We suggest that publishers reference SERU and prefer that they 
link to it.

Wouldn't it be possible for publishers who agree with the SERU
terms and conditions to simply use that for their click-through
