Uncle Sam: Ebooks for All

“A bill proposed to the Connecticut General Assembly would mandate that publishing companies sell ebooks to libraries at the same rates as they sell to consumers. The bill, introduced by Representative Brian H. Sear of the 47th district (Dem.), doesn’t mention terms, like the number of times a library would be allowed to lend a copy of an ebook before it would have to purchase it again, but one can assume the intent of the bill is to level the ebook playing field for libraries and thereby eliminate those kinds of stipulations.”
