Di you get an e-reader for Christmas or a holiday gift?  The library  is  purchasing a product called Overdrive that allows patrons to download e-books.  However, because the “fair use” provisions of the copyright law do not allow more than one user at a time to download an e-book, only one person at a time can use the service.  And it is very expensive.  So we need to decide what  to do.  We just can’t wait until the fair use issues are resolved so that electronic readers can enjoy the same resources that  print readers can.
