I suppose that one difference is that if you give away a paper book then you no longer have it. But if you give away copies of ebooks then you do still have it.

This could lead to a proliferation of copies, so that the author loses out on royalties. And whilst your family are doubtless honest people, there are others who might put the book on torrent sites.
