11. I think of it in terms of publishing and copyright laws.

 

If I buy a CD, I own it. I can physically loan it to a friend, but the point at which I start copying and redistributing/publishing it, I've broken copyright laws. If I physically hand my nook to a friend to read something on it, not a problem. If I'm duplicating the file and redistributing it, I need specific rights above and beyond that.

Same with text books. As a teacher, I can buy a textbook. I can loan the book to a student. I cannot legally xerox all the pages in it to provide them with free copies.
