Why did Westlaw ask me for permission to include one of my articles in the JLR Databsae?

April 28th, 2011

Why did Westlaw ask my permission? I have published 9 other law review articles, all of which are in JLR (Journals & Law Review¬†Database). I have never received a similar correspondence before. Perhaps the journal I published in (Loyola Law Review) does not grant full permission? Somehow Westlaw got my home address. The journal must have provided that info. Has anyone else received such a letter? I signed the license agreement, and included a note asking why they need this release. I’ll let you know if they reply.
