- "It is clear that the more voluntary a digital legal deposit scheme is at the outset, the better."
- "The best schemes are those where an emphasis has been put on publishers and librarians collaborating to address key concerns"
The publishers' reason for saying these things is different. What are the publishers' "key concerns" on which voluntary collaboration is needed?
- "copyright protection, digital security and monitored access"
- "clear, mutually agreed and flexible rules on access which protect publishers' normal exploitation; who is authorized to use deposited material, where they can access it and what they can lawfully do with it."
Given that the finances of many national libraries are in dire straits, the publishers have a helpful suggestion:
"Countries might usefully consider other models, such as larger publishers self-archiving material, agreeing to make it available on request to libraries."Or, in other words, lets just forget the whole idea of legal deposit.
