Special EPIC clause about Scitech:
Revise to state “4.7 Sub-licensees that are “educational institutions” under the Copyright Act 1994 may use a reasonable portion of the content from the Products in the preparation of “course packs”, being links to collections of compilations of materials (e.g. book chapters, journal articles) assembled by the institution for use by its enrolled students in connection with courses of instruction offered by the institution provided that each individual article is printed directly from the on-line database system that allows a “hit” to be registered on the ProQuest on-line system so that the publisher royalty can be accurately tracked and paid. They may also use a reasonable portion of the content from the Products to compile “course reserves”, being links to materials (e.g. book chapters, journal articles) made and stored by the institution for use by its enrolled students in connection with courses of instruction offered by the institution provided that such use is done using links from Licensee’s electronic reserves system directly on to the on-line database system in a manner that allows a “hit” to be registered on the ProQuest on-line system so that the publisher royalty can be accurately tracked and paid.”
