    It’s unfortunate but the majority of the comments following the article about Bookswim don’t seem to understand the difference between libraries or selling used books and what Netflix etc and Bookswim are doing. It appears some major public education is needed.

    amen! As I keep noting, do you honestly think the studios would let Netflix exist if they weren’t getting ongoing compensation?

    I’m curious about that: in what way could studios have refused to “let” Netflix exist? Technically what Netflix did was legal even before they entered into revenue-sharing agreements. Do you think the studios would have managed to get a first sale exemption a la records and software? More to the current point, do you think there’s a real chance that book publishers could?
