Deary is a bit daft about fairness and rights. Copyright law is fairly explicit about multiple uses of a published work. As long as no other party re-publishes the work, second use is permissable in many contexts. Not only can a library lend a copy, but so can an original owner lend it to a friend or relative. Even if there are "performance" rights limitations, one tends to doubt that the government will waste its time prosecuting casual borrowing. Democratic governments are based on laws reached with the consent of the populace. If an author or artist dislikes these laws, then either protest against these policies, or form your own government. Copyright is not an inalienable right or natural law. It is a man-made law.
