Re "does this license permit
"normal"  academic/educational use? (I do not think so)"

I think we need to assume that the pulisher also knows about "fair use"
and proceed with that in mind.  If we assume they don't believe in
"fair use" we have to read sinister meanings into everything and do
combat with them -- a very time-consuming activity.  Maybe I am too
naive.  tony
