"[Booksellers] wish you to engage in two separate hallucinations. First, that their limited licence to read a work on a device or within software of their choosing is equivalent to the purchase of a physical item. Second, that the vast majority of e-books are persistent objects rather than disposable culture."
The point is not that this attempt at reality-engineering is harming ebooks, so much as that it is being blithely and routinely ignored.
The article goes on to miss its footing in discussing potential for ebook resale or lending, which fails to see that readers will fill with once-read trash and forgotten tomes just as your iTunes folder has that Shania Twain album and the Sibelius thing you got because of that movie. Storage is cheap tending to free (for ebooks, especially so, as ebooks are tiny little files: a regular novel is under a meg - that would fit on a floppy disk).
There is no market for selling the clutter off your virtual bookshelves, because you have the TARDIS's library. It only runs out of space if you move the swimming pool into it.
