Make item availability dependent on copyright being processed
The copyright process is a virtual queue, meaning that it can be processed at any point during the transaction. But there is nothing stopping a site from putting something up on the web before copyright has been verified.
It doesn't often happen, just because of the timing. And if something comes up, sites typically just remove the item. But some sites would like to make the item availability dependent on copyright being completed.

I have some concerns about this. Perhaps this could be a setting that could be turned off or on, depending on the practices of each institution. There are times we do need to make materials available before copyright permission has been obtained, so we would want to retain the ability to do this if necessary.
