The Ebook User’s Bill of Rights

22 April 2011

Successful indie writers understand that their interests are closely-aligned with the interests of their readers.

The Ebook User’s Bill of Rights was written by a couple of self-described “Badass Librarians.”


Every eBook user should have the following rights:

  • the right to use eBooks under guidelines that favor access over proprietary limitations
  • the 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
