Good point but i did say non DRM ebooks and Paper backs also contain the same notice in the fronto of books stating not for hire or resale... yet i dont see the police seizing materials from my local secondhand bookstore.

Patricia the author loses out on the royalties if I lend the paperbook around to 4 or 5 people as I and those people wont purchase it (some reference books I may but not a general novel)
The torrent one is a non issue really for me and not relevant! someone could borrow a pbook from me and put it on a torrent!
