Not entirely the same thing. The point about library e-books is that:

1. The buy a licence to lend "x" copies, and their software ensures that no more than "x" copies are in use at any one time.

2. The books auto-expire after a certain time.

I think that most people would accept that this is a reasonable and acceptable use of DRM.
