Giving away or lending an Ebook

I would quite happily send anyone on here a paperback I would otherwise throw away so they could have a read or even give it to a charity so they can sell it.

What happens now Ebooks are introduced to the mix?

Can I send you a legally purchased DRM free ebook to read?
Can I lend it my wife to put on her reader If i purchased it?
Can I put it on disc and give it to a charity shop to resell?
Can I sell a disc with them on at a market stall?

thoughts?

Personally I think all of the above are fine with a paperback and are done all of the time so surely it would be ok to do the same with an Ebook? why not?
