Brown Women Writers Project: Use restrictions

Authorized Users may reuse downloaded electronic files (HTML or SGML) or transcriptions from the Textbase for private scholarly or pedagogical purposes, such as personal research, or to include in a course web site.

Authorized Users may modify the downloaded files or transcriptions, but they shall not represent the modified files as original WWP files, and they shall provide appropriate acknowledgment of the WWP as the source. The WWP shall supply, in a public location at our web site or on request, suggested forms of acknowledgment.

Authorized Users may use downloaded files and WWP transcriptions in products intended for sale with the written permission of the WWP, and such permission shall not be unreasonably withheld. For academic projects such as scholarly editions the fee for such use will be nominal. For commercial reuse, we may charge a fee or royalty based on the anticipated distribution and price of the publication.

Licensee and Authorized Users (including the Licensee’s campus bookstore or photocopy center) may include printed Materials in course packets which will be resold within the Licensee’s institution, without separate permission from the WWP, during the term of this Agreement. Such printed Materials must include a reasonable identification of the WWP as source.

Licensee and Authorized Users may download and redeliver electronic Materials in SGML or HTML from the Textbase as long as Licensee holds a valid, current license, and as long as they maintain internal access pages which provide reasonable identification of the WWP as source and owner of the Textbase, including a link to the WWP web site.

Neither Licensee nor Authorized Users (including a campus bookstore or photocopy center) may distribute or sell downloaded files or printouts outside the Licensee’s institution.
