Thanks for confirming it is possible for a vendor to set an expiration 
date on a PDF document, Stephen. I read the same thing you did on the 
website, but wasn't absolutely sure if the 180 day restriction applies 
to the downloaded PDF file also.

No one responded on- or off-list yet with any experience with this 
publisher. I have e-mailed the publisher asking for clarification on the 
legal access restrictions. I'll let the list know what I find out.

Regards, Debbie
