"The Digital Paradox: How Copyright Laws Keep E-Books Locked Up" by Hilmar Schmundt; translated from Charles Hawley ; from Spiegel International Online, March 24, 2014
Snippet: "...Today, the situation has come full circle. If a student in Freiburg wants to read the hard-copy version of a book from the university library in Basel, he or she can simply order it via an interlibrary loan. But if only an electronic version is available, interlibrary loans are generally not an option. The student has no choice but to climb into a train and head to Switzerland to read the book on a university computer."
