“The long awaited review of e-lending has now been published. The report, written by William Sieghart sets out some interesting recommendations. The announcement is here. and the review itself – available in Word format is here. I’ve only taken a very quick look through it, but it looks as though it’s reasonably positive.”

“In summary, the review provides something for everyone; authors, publishers, booksellers, libraries and readers. It’s a positive document, embracing the power of digitisation, and not shying away from it. It views it as a force for good, rather than as a threat. Finally, it’s looking forward practically, encouraging exploration and new models.”
