  • Broken on all major platforms, only locks people in
  • Great, but doesn’t apply to libraries
  • 3rd party systems don’t integrate well. (Stephen King = Scribner = imprint of Simon & Schuster)What if we also had 3M books?
  • What about right of first sale?
  • Inflexible checkout times – 1000 pages in 2 weeks? What about 4000 pages?
  • Kindle downloads are a bit easier, until Penguin changed that anyway
