Lawmakers Expand Inquiry into Library E-book Market

Senator Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) and U.S. Representative Anna Eshoo (D-California) this week issued a set of questions to nine major distributors. The inquiry requests information including: copies of standard licensing agreements and a description of restrictions; sales information going back to 2018; information on the kind of patron data that is gathered and kept;  a description of any legal actions the firms may have undertaken; and information about each firm’s 100 most sold or licensed works from 2015 to 2019.
