Anyone who has been following the discussion about whether or not it's okay for libraries to loan Kindles knows that Amazon has appeared to be giving mixed messages about the exact interpretation of their Terms of Service. I asked Norman Oder at Library Journal if he could contact someone higher than a first-named support staff person to give a definitive answer.
The definitive answer is that Amazon seems to be taking the don't ask/don't tell approach to the Kindles- in-libraries issue. Oder writes:
Amazon spokesman Drew Herdener confirmed to LJ—as he did last year—that the policy bars library lending, but “we don't talk about our enforcement actions.”
The rest of the story is here. Maybe Amazon could give some chill-out lessons to the recording industry.
