I think people are overlooking the primary points the article makes. First, eBook pricing has gotten out of hand - eBooks now routinely cost more than their print edition (and that is before any library-version markups.) Second, end users have given up the concept of owning a book. Kindle/Nook/Kobo/Apple/Google sell you a license to read the book, but they retain the ownership of it. And what this means is that consumers will ultimately end up spending more on content, and libraries suffer as well.
