Re: Acceptable Licensing Terms

Eric and Bernie:

For starters, have a look at the following URL, where I maintain links
to policies known to me.  I would welcome other policies to link to.


For more general statements (and I'd also welcome more of these), please
see the end of the "Bibliography of Licensing Sources" on the LIBLICENSE
web page at:


The section begins with articles/chapters/papers/reports, then moves to
books, and then lists principles at the end.  These include CIC,
Dutch-Terman, ICOLC, Joint principles of six Library Associations, Ninch,
and University of California.

Again:  send more links; we'd love to add them to one of the above
sites -- Including the new ones that you will develop.  All of these are
immensely helpful to the rest of us.   **Note that we don't have the ACRL
policy statement listed.  Can any readers supply a link to it?**
