Question Answer
Will CWI always be free to the public?

If you've put your hard work into this, you will want to be sure it is not resold or made unavailable to the public due to any future commercial contract. I can assure you that CWI will always be free to use and available openly. My ambition is to share the index as widely as possible, so it may also appear in some commercial sites if it makes finding their records easier, but this would never be an exclusive arrangement. If I am unable to host the index on a website personally, I am still committed to make this openly available even if that means some files that are available for free download somewhere like the internet archive and this allowing anyone to host it on a website.
