Hope this link comes through.  It is an article about publishers limiting how many times an ebook can be lent from a library before the library has to pay additional fees.

There's a discussion about it here.

There are some libaries boycotting Harper Collins right now, and so far they're the only ones I've seen limit thier library lending. A UK article I read says the libraries in the UK are now concerned they'll try it there as well.
