I say, finally, the ebook licensing and pricing terms are unsustainable and
byzantine.

Here is independent piece about the current issue, not to mention their
requirement to constantly repurchase their ebooks at pretty high prices and
other nasties.

I do not want to invite trolls, but this, together with unaffordable
education and health is sure to accelerate the general decline of of our
civilization/culture, if left unchecked.

Thanks for the link.
