Let libraries lend ebooks

 

for The Right to E-read

  • Join the campaign for public libraries in the UK to be able to lend ebooks free of charge to the public, as they do printed books. Current European copyright law means that publishers do not need to license libraries to lend ebooks at all. This means that the choice of ebooks available to borrow is limited and not all local authorities lend ebooks. Out of the six major trade publishers in the UK only three offer some of their ebooks to libraries and over 85% of ebooks are not available to public libraries in the UK.
