Re: Par for the course
I think my kobo has one purchased book on it, just to see how it worked. The other couple of thousand are either scans and conversions I've done myself, or net-supplied epubs - in all cases of books I already own the paper copies of.
I simply don't buy into the whole licence instead of buying thing. It's all very well the sellers saying 'we told you so' when it was buried in the small print somewhere: if they were honest about this, there'd be a big warning between hitting 'pay' and 'ok' saying in big friendly letter: you do realise you haven't bought this, and we can take it away any time, ok?
