You bought it, you own it, but can a library lend it?
from Copyright & Technology
From Bill Rosenblatt: I've been writing regularly about the battle that libraries are fighting over e-book lending — a battle whose outcome doesn't look good for libraries right now. Libraries can only lend e-books at the pleasure of publishers and not through any legal right. I have said that libraries' best shot at changing their fortunes as the reading world transitions to digital is to try to get e-lending rights enshrined in the law.
