The brick-and-mortar shopping experience is still worth it if I want something now or doing what to worry about paying for shipping (usually I buy *more* than I need at Amazon for small purchases to qualify for free shipping).
This isn't the Scott Lowe you're looking for. Move along, move along.
They are also taking the time to curate the collection of media that they're sharing.
If one were to volunteer at their local brick and mortar library, would they not be acting altruistically? Was Andrew Carnegie a thief for helping fund the creation of 2,509 public libraries? I’m sure that many publishers would prefer that their media not be freely available at these libraries.

I recently had the privilege of serving as a juror in a DUI trial. I was quite pleased to discover that the Judge appeared unbiased, if not slightly more lenient towards the defense.
Also, the defense attorney poked so many holes in the prosecutor's argument: that the jury only had to deliberate for about ten minutes. I was absolutely shocked to learn that he was a public defender.
On top of that, the defendant was a black male from the city while the jury was entirely white suburbanites.
Going into the trail, I expected that the system was going to screw the defendant, but the Judge showed no bias, the Public Defender was competent, and the Jury presumed the defendant to be innocent. Now I feel like the media is full of shit.
