Re: Ads in online journals, was: Re: CBC and Liblicense list

Users are not necessarily rationale beings. I know of a major medical library
where the patrons (MDs) complained about the pharmaceutical advertisements in
the first few minutes of a series of videotapes that the library had. The tapes
are unavailable without the ads and the physicians said they would rather do
without them.
