OCLC’s Proposed Policy for Use and Transfer of WorldCat® Records

In November 2008, OCLC announced an updated policy on the use and transfer of WorldCat records. OCLC planned to implement the policy in February 2009, but has since decided to convene a Review Board of Shared Data Creation and Stewardship to review the policy from the membership point of view before a new policy is implemented.
OLAC has some concerns about OCLC’s proposed policy for use and transfer of WorldCat records, which are expressed in the OLAC Statement on OCLC's Proposed New Policy for Use and Transfer of Worldcat Records


Create someplace to sign this thing?

This statement looks great.  I'm not a member of OLAC, but I'd be happy to sign it if it were a petition.  Can you guys do something like that?  Would it be counterproductive somehow?
