I enjoy reading teleread and I’m working on a project that might interest you. I’m trying to fix the problem of ebook licenses that prohibit legal sharing. I have found a solution that aims to satisfy readers and copyright holders. I plan to do this in two phases. In the first phase I will create an ebook lending social network for public domain works. Once I have done this I will convince authors and publishers to adopt a new ebook license that will allow sharing of copyrighted ebooks through the site. My goal is to make sharing ebooks more like sharing print books. You can find more details about how sharing copyrighted ebooks will work on my Indiegogo campaign page. If you like the idea I hope you will share the link with your readers and help me spread the word. Thanks for your time.
