...llibrarians across the country have banded together to boycott HarperCollins after the publisher decided it would limit the number of times an e-book can be checked out.
Under a new policy started Monday, HarperCollins will allow libraries lend out a digital version of a book just 26 times before the license expires. After that, the libraries must pay to lease the e-book again...librarians have taken to the Web in protest, saying the plan will ultimately bring libraries to their knees.
