I don't think that's true in even the simplest terms - the libraries have limited contracts with Overdrive. I don't think they automatically can convert books to a different ebook provider, for example, if their contracts expire. I thought this came up recently with one of the groups switching to IBM's having to sue Overdrive for the right or something like that?
