This is not my understanding of the standard access.  I just reviewed
both e-mail and print communications from Kluwer and don't see anything
about a 1 workstation limit.  A form I got includes a space for "IP
address(es)" and says nothing about limiting to 1.

Have you received written notification from Kluwer regarding this
policy? I have asked Kluwer for written verification.

If anyone has received an official notification from Kluwer, would you
be willing to forward a copy to me?

Thank you,

Thank you for this information.  I have been trying to set up these
titles, but have had no feedback from my emails.  I guess it's not worth
my time!
