The eBook User Bill of Rights | TeleRead: News and views on e-books, libraries, publishing and related topics:
"Every eBook user should have the following rights:the right to use eBooks under guidelines that favor access over proprietary limitationsthe right to access eBooks on any technological platform, including the hardware and software the user chooses, the right to annotate, quote passages, print, and share eBook content within the spirit of fair use and copyright, the right of the first-sale doctrine extended to digital content, allowing the eBook owner the right to retain, archive, share, and re-sell purchased eBooks. I believe in the free market of information and ideas."

Wishful thinking.
