The point of Peter's submission is not really to argue for any
specific stance, but just to document what publishers' stances
actually ARE. It's an attempt to get publishers to be open about what
their policies are -- something that one would think they can hardly
object to -- so that we know where we stand, what further negotiations
might be profitable, and whether other recommendations should be made
In short: it's a data-gathering exercise, not an argument.

As Peter said in reply to my question on his blog, this is your submission to Hargreaves, its not a negotiation. Publishers will also be putting forward their own nuanced submissions. This group also doesn't include other major text mining experts, so I would also ask that this should be presented as an OKFN or similar submission rather than the agreed text miners' bottom line - so I'm not convinced that I want to reply to this, to have yes/no/unhelpful reflected up to IPO as our views, when we'll be putting in our own submissions.
