Abstract: For libraries, the shift from ownership of printed works to access of electronic works has required the negotiation and processing of license agreements. Many rights and restrictions covered in license agreements are in direct conflict with traditional library processes and procedures. These agreements are contracts, based on contract law, and as such often supersede standard library policy based on copyright law. A comparison of rights guaranteed by the copyright law and rights assigned by a selected set of license agreements identifies certain areas of user rights that must be identified and protected.
