HarperCollins is looking to make some money by placing a 26 book loan license for libraries. Unlike paper books, e-books last a freaking long time. HarperCollins sees this as money-loss problem and has decided to “fix” this little problem. I can’t blame them. I would have done the same thing if I were in their shoes. I’m sure other publishers will start this same program.
We shall see if it works out.
