7.4 Financial

Cite Permalink:
Several interviewees discussed financial gain by others as a potential barrier. Some were concerned that by contributing to an aggregation, they may lose potential commercial opportunities through sale of their metadata. Others wished to secure agreement that if the aggregator generated profit, it should be shared with the contributing organisations. While financial gain is not the primary motive for many collection owners participating in this study, they do not wish to see commercial outfits profiting from their collections and if profit is to be generated, they want their organisations to benefit.
