Do I understand this correctly. Once the library has paid a licence fee
for (say) one years subscription to a given data set/publication and has
enjoyed the benefit of that agreement for the period, then to continue to
make use of that data set/publication beyond the term of the agreement
(implied by the statement)  "to retain the data" appears to be a bit iffy. 

Answer this one; if the library retains the data, why? And as soon as
someone makes use of that data (outside of the period of licence) will the
library automatically renew its licence agreement? Does Salie imply not? 

Is it like, buying a bus ticket to ride and then keeping the bus, just in
