Seems like the only party that will be able to police the issue is OverDrive. Presumably they will have to review libraries' registration and lending policies, and maybe even lending statistics. And pass judgement. What about library consortia for electronic materials, like the (fantastic!) one here in British Columbia, or Alaska's? What about libraries that mutually extend lending privileges to people who live in other libraries' jurisdictions? What about libraries that allow registration "with no fixed address," so that homeless people can check out materials? Again, B.C. libraries also have these programs.

Who else but OverDrive will be able to do this, and how could they possibly avoid it?
