Hi Sam,

Philpapers has an OAI-PMH interface onto user-uploaded content, but does
not share any other info due to licensing restrictions. However, at least
some of their content is open access, and their terms and conditions
restrict use for things like sale and so on.

If you contact David as Jim suggests, and find out if they would be willing
to provide a dump of all or some of their data, we could build a bibsoup
collection out of it and use it for your textus demos. Also, I note on
their API page that they say a JSON API is coming soon - so if we can get
them interested by offering bibsoup functionality on their pages, which
would give them a JSON interface, then all the better.
