None. I'm talking about used pBooks. How many "used ebooks" have you seen for sale?

I think you missed the point. It curtails sales on used eBooks.
I'm not sure how you think that's possible.

What, exactly, is a "used ebook?"

I can buy an ebook. Depending upon DRM or lack of, I can copy and share it with others.

I suppose I could theoretically sell it, if I could find someone willing to buy, but I've never heard of it being done.

A pBook is a physical product I can sell and transfer. Once transferred, *I* no longer have it. An ebook is a different animal.
