Licensing agreements generally determine the purpose of the use of content for licensing and sublicensing. This is sometimes referred to as «authorized use,» «Terms of Use» or «Purpose.» Use may include that if their licence contains an automatic renewal clause, both the licensee and the licensee should have the right to terminate the contract and terminate automatic renewal; this right should not benefit a single party. It is also useful for the content owner to be required to inform the licensee that automatic renewal is close to the objective, unless the licensee informs the owner. However, many content owners would not agree to include the latter clause. The management of multiple licenses by the takers becomes all the more important as a license does not continue in automatic licensing agreements without knowing it. To determine the reasonable fee, both content owners and licensees must be able to assess the value of authorized electronic content. As the electronic content license is still new to most of us, this may require some assumptions or experiments. If you are unable to accurately determine or negotiate the value of the content, you may be able to arrange an intermediate fence to help you determine that value. The inclusion of an electronic ADPs in licensing agreements between publishers (and other content owners) and libraries is somewhat controversial, and agreements on whether or not to include these agreements are different. One of the reasons this is controversial is because the traditional ILL meant that printing materials were shared with another library and then returned to the original library. This may not apply to electronic documents, although a publisher that authorizes the ILL may require that the electronic document be destroyed from the «loan library» after a certain period of time. In addition, the development of digital rights management mechanisms can help protect digital content from unauthorized use.

If you accept an electronic ADA, it may be necessary to define the ILL for the purposes of your licence, i.e. in an electronic context. Check your consent and see which uses are expressly permitted. Are there any missing uses? You need to include some of these forgotten uses/rights? What is your «normal» use of content? What about the future use of this content, does the license provide for it, or do you have to return the content owner for further approval? Do you intend to post content on flickr, YouTube or other social networking sites, and do you need additional rights? With the rights granted to you, can you continue to play a regular role in providing content to your collaborators and researchers and possibly to the general public? The licence should also apply at the end of the licence fee. Is it due or due at a later date at the time the contract is signed? Or if the tax is payable gradually, and if so, what is the frequency and amount of each payment? It is customary to add these details to the agreement in an appendix. The duration can be based on a fixed duration (for example. B from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2015 or for one year from the signing of the license) or on the basis of payment of any annual subscription fee. Educational institutions may prefer that the licence cover the school year as opposed to the calendar year or another date. It is important to specify the duration of the agreement. An organization may prefer a period that corresponds to its exercise.
