Better late than never

I’m a little late to the bitching party on this one, but I’m reposting anyway. From Library Journal:

HarperCollins Puts 26 Loan Cap on Ebook Circulations

Why, why, why does the law of first sale magically not apply to digital/electronic objects? Are the bogus restrictions of access/usage licenses* breaking libraries?

*Maybe that’s the incorrect term, but that’s what it seems like to me. I don’t think publishers to be able to compartamentalize access/usage and purchase. GAH.
