Subject: TLG Policies

Periodically, HUMANIST will carry communications on the subject of
downloading procedures suitable for use with TLG CD ROM texts. Thus,
it might be useful to reiterate here some of the TLGs policies
(subscribed to by all CD ROM licensees) on the subject.

Section III C of the TLG license agreement stipulates that
The above provisions are not meant to render research difficult;
rather, they are designed to assure that the field can continue to
benefit from the TLGs materials and resources. Uncontrolled use of
TLG texts by the field would quickly lead to a host of legal and
proprietary problems vis-a-vis the copyright holders of TLG source
texts; these problems, in turn, could easily jeopardize future TLG
text dissemination activities.
