Now here is one that concerns all students:


eTextbooks that expire after one semester. The
publishers must love these

-No used book market-prices will skyrocket
-You can't lend eTextbook to a friend
-You can't give it to someone to use next semester
-No material cost
-No school bookstore (middleman) which also happen to
employ lots of students, many of which (like SJSU) are
owned by the students.
-Professors can't copy pages to hand out for
instructional purposes

Maybe we should flyer Stanford, Berkley, SJSU during
book buying season????
