Why does the library require registration?

Post by bartigue » Thu Apr 06, 2017 10:11 pm

I've been asked this, here is the answer:

Before the library was put "behind" the wall of registration the documents in it were being downloaded a few hundred times a day. These are uploaded to sites that illicitly charge people for them, or sites that spam the heck out of people just trying to get information. These downloads stopped entirely with the movement of the files to a registered-users-only location.

It obviously serves a dual purpose, to bring a lot of folks back home to mirafiori.com.
