Absolutely brilliant! Imagine if you were consulting a bibliography of a given subject or publication and could simply click on each entry and immediately access that material. The amount of time and effort expended in research could be greatly reduced, thereby allowing for MORE research, MORE learning and MORE results. As the man said, we have the opportunity to "one-up the Greeks." That is an opportunity which should not be hindered by excessive copyright regulations and old ways of thinking.
