What laws govern ebook loans?

Answered by Daniel Björklund
Fråga: 
What laws govern ebook loans via Swedish libraries? Or, put another way: do Swedish libraries have the legal right to loan ebooks regardless of publisher/author wishes?
Svar: 

First, it's not the libraries that create e-books. A company called Axiell supply the Swedish libraries with the E-books in swedish in cooperation with the publishers. And it is the publishers that decides which books will become digitalized, sometimes it even happens that a publisher retracts a book from Axiell.
