If I good understand the 'fear dealing' is "unlawful in the US" and
more " Publisher Assoc. is not instructing its members to adopt the
Guidelines" (adopt or accept?), and finally the Guidelines are for "academic
library", and the normal people?
So I (as librarian or user) still hope the ECC directive bee
influenced by the South African document and by the spirit of the
Dear colleague I am the last come so be indulgent if I have not
followed all the past discussions, but I have a doubt:
in which case someone is reading a scientific or technical article
not "for research or private study".
If the 99% of the articles are requested "for research or private
study" and if is "fear dealing" give that for nothing to that 99% of people,
the subscriptions will bee less and less in the future.
On the other hand, the licence to do copy will bee valid for 1
university? (how will people out of that university do?), 1 library ?, 1
country (what will bee the price?).
Perhaps we (the library) have to reduce the fair dealing to the
closed environment of the library or of the university, abandon interlibrary
loan, and accept to sell the articles, like the booksellers sell the books,
with a price (fix?) for the copyright paid to the publisher assoc., and a
price (fix?) for the service; perhaps using "Library voucher" instead of
money, as IFLA do with his voucher.
