The article discusses the legality of German libraries' granting single or multiple user access to a gratis eBook version of a shelved book. The ruling is that any private publisher contract that forbids an action takes precedence. Making the eBook version available to one or more PCs in the library must be explicit in the contractual conditions between publisher and library purchaser.
