CNN: Libraries are fighting to preserve your right to borrow e-books.
Generally my habits with e-books lean towards purchases more so than lending: but even so, I find the option of checking out an electronic copy useful once in awhile. In my neck of the woods that usually takes the form of OverDrive.
I imagine that as time goes on the issue will only get worse.
E-books are not going away, and most of us don't want public libraries to go away either. Eventually, I expect the amount of books only available in digital form will go up over the decades not down. Authors and publishers still need to make coin but I don't think that being a dick about it will help anyone, least of all in the long run: the one being a dick.
