Check out Mary Minow's answers on LibraryLaw Blog for the following:

- The device is loaded with public domain content and/or content with permission to lend (such as creative commons licensed content).
- The device is loaded with ebooks licensed from a vendor such as Amazon. The license may allow a limited number of copies such as five or six.
- The device has unauthorized content.
