Christine Mack Gordon asks concerning the highly priced full-text database
of Shakespeare adaptations:

It does indeed violate all sorts of copyright, and could both get you thrown in
jail and this list banned from the net. I think, given the expertise on this
list, it would be better use of anarchic impulses to pool the resources we have
at our disposal and develop our own set of freely available on-line resources.
The C-H collection does not necessarily represent the last word in scholarship,
in any case, and it is very over-priced.

This is the best general answer I got; it's from Ray Siemens. Bradley Berens
actually found the book for me!

I am not sure if this is "multi-media" but I would very much like to see a full
text of a play with the abilty to "click on" or otherwise move directly from a
portion of the text to explanatory notes and, upon a further "click" to a
selection of literary criticism and historical context. Perhaps even a
bibliograpy or list of audio or video productions.  In other words, context
sensitive offerings which broaden or illuminate the text.
 
Also, how about being able to search the cannon for WS's treatment of, e.g.
death or love or jealousy etc.  In other words, search by concept.
 
I'll buy it.
