Default Need photocopies of _old_ reports?



>I'd be rich if I had all the uncollected royalties from my articles ... No

Is anybody reading this? I can walk into my rinky dink local public
library with bib info and request a copy by "interlibrary loan" (= copy).
The form I fill out and sign says something like "for personal
use". As long as I don't abuse the system, one or two short
papers are free. A typical ILL fee can be anywhere from $5 to
$25 but most public libraries I've used have an ILL budget so
patrons can have a few copies at no cost every now and then.

In addition, I think the ILL libraries have some kind of system where
they get ILL credits for providing materials and use credits for
requesting materials.

If I want special service (fax, Fed Ex, an "express" ILL library versus
a slow poke ILL library) I do have to pay an extra fee.

The original post was about very old papers (Annalen, Zeitschrifte,
.... 1920s). I imagine that the publishers renew their copyrights, even
on such old material. Otherwise, the copyright violation argument
is moot. More recently, under public pressure, many journals are
allowing FREE access to their archives after various embargo
periods. 0 months; 1 month; 6 months; 1 year. There is also growing
pressure to require that research paid for by public funding be published
in "free" journals (at least in the life sciences) so that the entire public,
not just those with well endowed researh libraries, can read it if they
so desire.

Regardless of your position on Mark Tarka's offer, I can't imagine that
you wouldn't be better served locally by your public library.

The fees at my local library are $10 plus a $2/page copying fee ... Mark's
offer is indeed better ...
bottom line ..whether from Mark or the library ... personal use is till the
case ...


That has my vote ... if it gets counted somewhere ..

Be seeing you

I guess I have to say it again. It is legal for oyu to make a copy for oyur
own use. It is not legal for you to make a copy for another person, or for
another person to make one for you, without permission from the copyright
owner, and paying a fee if requested.

public,

And who will pay the cost of these "free" publications? Paper isn't free.
Printers don't work for free. Journals can't be mailed free.

If you live in a place where such service is
available. ILL is hot stuff in first world
troughs :-)


As in -- "Boy, fetch me a paper!"


It's time to set the hook...show the text of the law
you rely upon to support your argument.

Mark (Hey...knock it off...noone's interested in the offer.)
