Not a problem -- in fact, a number of libraries have now set up ebook
loans.  Essentially, the library can set it up so that its members can
download ebooks without a charge.  I assume the library pays for the
ebook and the lending service, and I assume DRM is used to make sure
members don't keep a copy of the books past the "due" date or check
out  the ebook multiple times.
