Will Our Students Be Renting Their Case Books?

Today, an increasing number of thrifty college students are renting their text books. According to EdNET Insight:

In the past two years, the post-secondary textbook rental market has exploded. Driven by the outcry over book prices, federal legislation, readily available pricing information on the Internet, and sophisticated web-based rental management platforms, old and new competitors are disrupting the $10 billion college textbook business.

As far as I know, the rental phenomenon has yet to hit the law school world, but we can expect to encounter this revolution pretty soon.
