Model Licenses


This is fascinating!  When someone on this list called a model agreement
"delusional" I kept quiet mainly because I half agreed on the odds of
getting agreement between librarians and publishers.  I realize that the
legal environment in America is different from England, but I feel any
such agreement anywhere, could serve as an example everywhere. 

Please keep us informed of progress.
