I do wonder if some type of compensation has been arranged for eBooks and eLibraries as has been for solid books with Public lending Right agreements. However, perhaps the agreements with Amazon and publishers will tend to this matter. If anything one would think eBooks at eLibraries would be easier and more exact to track.

Kindle Owners’ Lending Library UnveiledBy Jason Boog
Today Amazon opened the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library, allowing Amazon Prime members to rent up to one digital book per month with no due date. The library includes 5,000 titles, ranging from three books by Michael Lewis to Suzanne Collins‘ TheHunger Games trilogy to Sara Gruen‘s Water for Elephants.
The library books can only be read on Amazon Kindle devices: the Kindle, Kindle Touch, Kindle Keyboard or Kindle Fire–excluding readers on mobile devices and rival tablets. Customers can sign up for the $79-a-year Amazon Prime membership to access the library.
