+ - Librarians boycott Harper Collins ebook killswitch->

Submitted by metrometro
metrometro (1092237) writes "boycottharpercollins.com has the story of Harper Collins attempt to end the right to loan a purchased ebook, via a license which kills the book after 26 reads. Librarians are not pleased: "We're not a business, we're a commons... this turns us into a rental outfit in the long-term." Video rental won this battle in the 1980s. Will librarians win today?"
