I came across a site in which librarians are boycotting Harper Collins and its smaller branches. This is the only publishing house I thought was trying to licence the ebooks 26 times. I bought my Sony PRS650 for the option of borrowing books from the library and I think is a ripoff from the publishers to licence ebooks only so many times. A physical book can be loaned out more than 26 times and may last hundreds of years.
I hope the libraries limit the purchase of Harper Collins books period.

In this age of economic downturns and libraries dealing already with budget cuts, it is a
low blow to readers and libraries coming from greedy publishers.
