I wonder if you can help me on the following one: as a publisher, my
company is putting together a database of abstracts regarding a > specific drug.
We would like to obtain information on the copyright issues of such
service, assuming that:
1. the database will consist of 500-600 abstracts downloaded from
2. it will be loaded on a floppy disc
3. it will be distributed in 5000-10000 copies and distributed to
doctors by the reps of our client.
I have already asked the National Library of Medicine, in the US, and
all they can say is that I should require legal advice before
Our lawyer says there is no rule to be safe unless we apply to every
Any better suggestion?
Many anticipated thanks.
