Downloading digital assets: King County library lets you copy its e-books

The Seattle Times reports:

Last November, the county library became the first in the nation to allow
people to download audio "e-books" to home computers.

An e-book can be downloaded from the library's Web site onto a computer and
either burned to a CD or transferred to an MP3 player.

For free.

Special software is needed on the user's end, which allows the audio books to be downloaded and then inhibits access to the audio book once the loan period is over. The program targets those who are unable to get to the library as well as those who are traveling. Users note that they like the program because they do not have to remember to return something to the library.
