As a metter of fact that is true. It is equally true that the government needs to get out of franchising monopolies on stories and information altogether.

On a more serious note, our little non government funded town library is looking into "lender readers" older donated readers we can lend to those who can't afford readers. Loaded with public domain and promotional books. Obviousely if we do this it lacks the convenience of downloads, but on the other hand, there is a lot of stuff out there and our space is very limited. We may not have much from the major publishers on this path, but we might introduce people to authors just as good which will be more in their budgets when they can make purchases.
