I agree that the government shouldn't regulate prices but they've already broken the free market system by granting these companies a copyright monopoly. I think the appropriate response is to shorten the copyright.

I personally don't believe that libraries have to lend new fiction books fulfill their purpose. If copyright was shorten to say 14 years then they could lend all the 14 year fiction books they want with no Overdrive required.
