What kinds of licensing agreements do librarians, educators, and researchers commonly encounter? How can these best be negotiated? What does all that legalese mean? What do you need from a licensing agreement and how can you get it? Here is a practical guide designed and written to help non-lawyers understand, settle, and respond appropriately to licensing issues for materials in all formats. Includes a checklist containing factors that help you decide whether or not to negotiate an agreement; which types of licensing agreements serve your purpose; what you need in a license (including language never to agree to and clauses that must be there to protect you and your users); model and suggested clauses; answers to frequent questions librarians and educators have about licenses; and an index of licensing terminology.
