Call for License Texts

Dear Liblicense-l Readers:

Our Liblicense Web site contains a link to actual publishers licenses.  It
can be found at:

Currently included are the following licenses, and we are looking for more
examples.  We would like to annotate them briefly, as well, as a service
to our many users.  SO, may we hear from you if you either (1) are a
producer or vendor and have text of a license that we might include or
link to; and/or (2) if you are interested in working with the list and
describing each licensed product briefly (for example, "License XXX comes
from Universally Brilliant Learned Scholarly Journal Publications, Inc.,
and covers their complete list of 10,000 journal titles.  This is a World
Wide Web remotely accessible resource and the license is based on the
simultaneous user model" -- or whatever is a useful but brief

If your message would be of interest to the whole list, please respond
here.  Otherwise, please message:

Thank you in advance for this information.  The Moderators
