If the patron group in question is part of the "authorized users" under your license agreement(s), I don't see why you need to go through all these steps. You are not posting the articles to a public space, rather making them available for specific individuals on a secure server.
If the patron group is not part of your "authorized users" and/or if you are creating a revenue stream from this document delivery service, that is a separate issue. I'm not clear on why these patrons do not have electronic journal access and that point would probably help sort this out.
In these types of cases, the distinction should be made between license agreements and copyright. The license agreement should be addressed first, then copyright law/guidelines. That is my take on it - others may disagree.

Subject: [Workflowtoolkit-l] Electronic Doc Del copyright
Hi ILL folks,
I am stuck on a copyright issue. We are starting to do a bit of Document Delivery to a specific set of patrons who do not have electronic journal access. Right now we are using this tiring method of printing all e-articles out, scanning and sending them to ourselves. We then check them in and deliver them to web for the patron.
We would like to start using the feature in ILLIAD where we can drop the article in the pdf folder and just check in to the patron using Notify Electronic Delivery.
We are printing items out to avoid thinking about copyright restrictions of each journal. I am going to check in with my Collections folks but I also wanted to know what the ILL community feels about this. Is just posting the PDF, without printing or adding a coversheet, ok in the eyes of most journal publishers? How have you handled this issue in doc del and lending?
