I filled in the request form for the Reuters corpusat
and pressed submit.
They say (at
"Your request will be acknowledged by e-mail and you will be sent two copies
of the agreement through the postal service."
But I have not gotten the email acknowldgement.
Is the email sent manually?
Have other people successfully used this request form recently?
Hopefully helpfully yours,
