  • 24. the eBook User’s Bill of Rights full text at librarianinblack.net/librarianinblack/2011/02/ebookrights.html
    • Every eBook user should have the following rights:
    • the right to use eBooks under guidelines that favor access over proprietary limitations
    • the right to access eBooks on any technological platform
    • the right to annotate, quote passages, print, and share eBook content within the spirit of fair use and copyright
    • Digital Rights Management (DRM), like a tariff, acts as a mechanism to inhibit this free exchange of ideas, literature, and information.
    • As a customer, I am entitled to be treated with respect and not as a potential criminal. As a consumer, I am entitled to make my own decisions about the eBooks that I buy or borrow.
