Subject: Haworth Press Journals

In cataloging a title change to a Haworth Press journal - _journal of family
social work_ - I was struck by paragraph 16 from the general journal
information.I quote: "16) LOCAL PHOTOCOPYING: Individual, classroom,
library reserve room use: Photocopies of single articles in this journal may
be  reproduced for personal use, library use, or classroom use only after
payment of the following reproduction/royalty fee: $1.50 per copy per article
or  portion thereof. This fee does not pertain to making photocopies for
resale.  Prepayment required. Checks should be made payable to The Haworth
Press, Inc. and mailed to The Haworth Press, Inc., 10 Alice Street,
Binghamton,     NY 13904-1580." I then checked two other
Haworth titles - _Social work with groups_ and _Social work in health care_.
For  both titles the early 1993 issues contain the following: "Copies of
articles in this journal may be noncommercially reproduced for the purpose of
educational or scientific advancement. Otherwise, no part of this work may be
reproduced or utilized in any form or by any means, electronic or mechanical,
including  photocopying, microfilm and recording, or by any information
storage and retrieval system, without permission in writing from the
publisher.   Permission does not extend for any services providing
photocopies for sale in any way." For both titles, the statement changes to
that above with issue no. 3. I understand the new language to mean, among other
things, that no individual may photocopy an article for their own personal
use and that no library may photocopy an article for ILL purposes.

Haworth has no way to enforce these statements
but  may intend to make an example of someone/some library. Can the
publisher  preempt the fair use in the copyright law? This has huge
implications.    Thought? Comments? Suggestions? Has this come
up before and I just missed it?
