Yeah, library, right. FYI, you don't get to keep those books, just borrow them.
I know people that take their laptops to the local library and rip library music CD's right in front of the librarian that was clueless about what was happening.
If someone has a scanner and OCR, give them a copy they'll make their own. Once the first digital copy is made, it doesn't matter if they ever release on eBook or not, the pirated copies are out there.
My point about the library wasn't that the books had to be returned, it was they get read freely without additional contribution to the author, might as well be pirated for an intents and purposes.
Music on the other hand, was ripped at the library and kept, in less than a couple of minutes.
