Are you sure about that? The publishers/retailers certainly want you to believe that you are not allowed to do those things, and make it very difficult to accomplish them with DRM, but I'm not sure what would happen legally. There's no actual law that I know of which is preventing you from lending or selling an eBook, at least in the US.

And yet you can read a library book for free but if you want to read the ebook you have to pay almost as much as, if not more than, you would for the physical book.
Yeah, no doubt many current pricing models are ridiculous.
