reselling ebooks

Ebooks… they appeared rather recently but nowadays they play an important role in our life by giving us a cheaper, space-saving and weight-free option to enjoy their contents. When you purchase your eBook, you read it on your device and you finish it, your eBook stays unused since after. So what can you do about it? The first idea is to try to sell it to someone else. When you buy an eBook it means that you are purchasing the licence to this eBook but not the actual book. The copyright law on licensing can be very misleading: some terms can be very strict whereas other terms can be up to the licence creator.

A lot of science students (and not only) often complain about why they have literature added to their curriculum, especially considering the fact that it has absolutely nothing to do with their major. They may see it as a waste of time or additional workload with no benefits in the future.
