Techdirt: Publisher Wiley Lets Libraries Offer eTextbooks Again… But Only For Nine Months

Techdirt: Publisher Wiley Lets Libraries Offer eTextbooks Again… But Only For Nine Months. “Last week, we wrote about how publisher Wiley had removed 1,379 textbook titles from the list of books that academic libraries could lend out, thereby forcing students to have to buy the textbooks, rather than take them out of the library. As we noted, this was an example of how damaging copyright has been on the free flow of information…. Of course, after lots of people got mad about this removal, Wiley relented… but only for a little while. The statement is… kinda weak.”
