    On behalf of Nature Publishing Group:
    We understand that the letter from University of California and California Digital Library has raised concerns. However, we believe that the situation was not described fairly by CDL.
    We have now issued a public statement on this matter, where we have fully described our understanding and position. You can find our statement here: http://www.nature.com/press_releases/cdl.html
    Nature Publishing Group will be doing all we can to bring this to a successful conclusion as soon as possible.
