Here’s something I was wondering about…

Why are public libraries legal?

Are all the books borrowed from there (by thousands and thousands of people) considered genaiva, since the authors are being deprived of each person buying the book themselves. Even allowing for the fact that most people probably wouldn’t (or can’t afford to) buy their own copy of the book, a certain percentage (maybe 5-10%) WOULD do so if they couldn’t borrow it for free.

So… what is the heter of borrowing a library book (or DVD, etc.)???
