Feliciter;2010, Vol. 56 Issue 5, p208
The article discusses the problem with electronic books (e-books) and the advantage of physical book over it. It states that a problem with e-books is that the people owning the rights to use them employ digital file to keep the same control over them and their hard copy. It notes that physical books remain the perfect tool for reading because they have the advantage of incorporating content, rights, and format administration. It opposes those who tell that the physical book is gone.
