Scholarly scam?

Scholarly scam? A “subscription company” in Houston, run by a husband-wife team, is being sued by some really big scientific publishing companies. The publishers are accusing Scholarly Publications Inc. of using false names to purchase subscriptions to scientific journals at the individual rate (which can be as little as a few hundred dollars per year) and reselling the subscriptions to libraries (which can have rates as high as several thousand dollars per year). The company says the lawsuits are based on a “misunderstanding” and that things are being worked out with the publishers.
