Well things have been kind of hysterical in Sweden this year. After negotiations ground to a halt between the Swedish Library Association and the Swedish Publisher Association, the SLA took the slightly drastic action of publishing an ad in our largest newspaper, Dagens Nyheter http://tinaottosson.files.wordpress..../06/annons.jpg The title is " Say Hi to your new librarian" (that's supposed to be a CEO of a Publishing company) and basically is a protest against the publishers controlling which e-books are allowed to be borrowed or not. But the system has to change and soon. For example, one library I know of has to deduct more than 20 000 euros, not planned for, in this years budget alone.
