I'm not sure of all the legalities. But with the number of ereaders and tablets and smartphones and the projected future sales it occured to me that someone might try something like renting ebooks. Like movies or DVD's. Amz is already renting college textbooks for less than their price. The infrastructure would have to be vast and lower priced ebooks would not be financially feasible (easier just to buy), but higher priced ebooks (+$15) might work. I am sure within the next few years someone will come up with that service.Dara England said:Ebooks are already available for lending. Or do you mean some big database of ebooks working like an online library but with a monthly charge?
