I'm preparing a talk on the legal issues concerning libraries and ebooks. If any readers can help me find any modified licenses that libraries have negotiated with ebook device sellers or ebook sellers, please let me know. And if you have any specific legal questions, send them to me so that I can use them to help me prepare my talk. THANKS.
