Mr. Lire. To the societies who are publishing journals, and is Fiile nud into the budget of the general publication.

Mr. LANTISON. What does the author of these articles derive in the War of monetary or other valuable considerations!

Nr. Liin. He gets fame and prestige
Jr. DANMA. That's what I thought.
lor. ('airs. That is the name of the game.

Vr. HAVILNON. Oh, I have written a few, and I received exactly that we amount. (Laughter.]

Mr. Karp. Speaking for the authors, let me make this point. First of all, I should point out Jr. Lle('assey who sits behind me represents the ***tion, no), page charges are not available from GovernI t grants to commercial publishers, for profit.

Mr. DANIEL MIN. By x'jet" you are talking about a so-called nonpromet orralization.

Mr. Karr. The point I would make is this. Fint of all, the amendir, ** aut priptions proposed by the library a-riations apply for g le copsing, a tremendous amount of which is done of literary

lui artistic material, short stories, PRVN, the works; those authors wre for money. .1 Dr. ('airns has ponted out, there is a very oftr monetary motive for authors to write.

Mr. DANDUS. One last question. In the type of copying that me an tawag atout, terlineal journals and the line, as opposed to the pe lira Linten will tell us about tomorrow, which cover the whole

STATEMENT OF AMERICAN BUSINESS PRESS, INC. The American Business Press, which is composed of some 100 **18..nd business publications published from coast to coast, is extremely even about the growiog practice of unrestricted photocopying which has been eturinn in recent years, and only compounded by the Williams and Wilkins decora.

laless a way can be found to protect the ability of periodical publishers spend the money to gather, edit and produce technical and scientific in tion, and then distribute it throughout the nation, the tow of that informatwot can be seriously curtailed.

Some American Business Press member publications, like Oil and Gas Journal are sent to paid subscribers. Others, like Iron Age, are sent via the CULT circulation route to readers who specifically request the receipt of that piha tion. In the first instance, both the reader and the advertiser supply the trade through the publisher, to permit the gathering and editing of technical and scientific articles, which are then copyrighted. In the second instance, te publication's primary income comes from advertisers. In both cases, per a information is distributed to people employed in every phase of the technical and economic activity.

If the information and the articles gathered by editors are photocopied with out the consent of the copyright owner, we will have situations arising liar the one dramatized in the attached Exhibit A. We have deleted the bane the company which sent the memorandum out, but we present for the considera tion of the Committe what is happening.

The only effect of curtailed subscriptions or curtailed circulation which the practice will cause is a severe restriction upon the securing and circula 10. of important editorial information because scientific and technical public will not have the wherewithall to gather and edit the information to be per

ipd. Ir this happens, the important news and scientific and technical infuum mation gathering function performed by the simrialized busines pres will be seriously impaired, and there will be considerably less information to pouco copy for those who do not respect copyrights.

We think the attached example tells the story better than we can. Hopefully the Committe and the Commission established in the last Congress will be up with solutions to this most serious problem. The American Business Press stands ready to be of whatever assistance it can in this effort. Attachment: Exhibit A.

EXHIBIT A To: All Fome office executives
