I had a terrible thought. Not only is this going to create more fragmenting and require libraries to spend money on another license for every book, but probably Amazon is going to get paid for every Kindle license that is sold to a library via Overdrive? Yuck.

The way I read it is that Amazon is going to give Overdrive access to their Kindle DRM servers. What I wonder is will the existing Mobipocket eBooks be able to be used as Kindle eBooks with this new DRM server access given that Amazon owns Mobipocket?
