Dating back to 1955, the Gower Federal Services contain governmental agency decisions many of which are not readily available elsewhere. The Royalty Valuation and Management decisions are enhanced by indices developed by the Foundation. Subscriptions to these loose-leaf services are available on a calendar-year basis. The services may be purchased individually or as a combined subscription at a discounted price, except for the Royalty Valuation and Management Service, which is purchased separately. A special discounted rate is available to law schools.
New subscribers are provided with all material retroactive to January of the calendar year and are billed for the full calendar year. Subscribers are invoiced automatically at the end of each calendar year.
An additional one-time charge for base volumes is added to the price of new subscriptions to the Outer Continental Shelf, Royalty Valuation and Management, and Package Services. Thereafter, renewal subscribers pay only the annual subscription rate.
In addition to the print subscriptions offered for sale by the Foundation, Gower decisions are available on Westlaw by subscription to the "Gower Federal Service" or "Royalties Management Service Decisions" databases.
