Have any of you bought a site license for the AP online stylebook?  Our librarian tried to do so and found she couldn't.
The AP contract states that its terms are governed by New York state law. North Carolina regulations require that either North Carolina law governs or the contract must be silent on that issue. She said that the law in Connecticut, where she used to work, said the same thing.

AP was unwilling to consider an alternative contract, so we were shut out. What are your experiences?
