I've decided to follow up permitted use of ebooks with other retailers.
I've just sent an email to Barnes and Noble
Dear Barnes & Noble,
I have a question about your terms & conditions for Nook Books.
I note that part XII "Digital Content" grants me a license to "make personal, non-commercial use of the Digital Content" and that I may "transfer the Digital Content from [my] NOOK Library to no more than a total of six (6) other electronic devices that [I] own."
Does my personal use license extend to allowing anyone else to read the Digital Content on one of my electronic devices?
To be more specific, if I transfer one of my nook books to an electronic device within the limits specified above, may I allow any of the following to use the device to read my nook book?

Hmm... WH Smith use kobo, and I couldn't find an ebooks terms and conditions section at Waterstones. It's a bit hard to ask about T&Cs when you can't find them!
So: I've asked Amazon, Kobo and B&N. Anyone else I should ask?
