I don't understand. First you said:
Quote:
There's nothing wrong with lending your mother your reading device with the book on it - that way, only one person has the eBook, and there's no piracy.
But then, when I suggest doing exactly that, you say that it's not permitted.

So which is it?

Can you point to the section of the Kindle "Terms and Conditions" where it says that you can not have the same book on multiple devices? Or where it explicitly says that you can not loan your Kindle to someone else?

As far as I can see, it is definitely not against the terms to have multiple people reading books on different devices tied to the same account. If it were, why would Amazon have this statement on the "Manage Your Kindle" page?
