Richard Mollet, the CEO of the Publishers Association (who is a very nice chap actually, and I had the pleasure of debating with him a while ago) is on record as saying “the nub of the problem with e-lending is that we have to be sure publishers can have a sustainable business model because when it is as easy to buy a book as to click a button and borrow one, a lot more people are going to take the borrowing option and that has serious implications for authors and their royalties, for booksellers and as well for publishers.
