Way to digital, U of T

From a book I was trying to access online through the University of Toronto library: "Borrow this ebook! Available on a 3 day loan. Returning it makes it available to someone else sooner."

Reminds me of the Penny Arcade take on Playstation Home:

There are things about Home that are simply beyond my understanding. Chief among these bizarre maneuvers is the idea that, when manufacturing their flimsy dystopia, they actually ported the pernicious notion of scarcity from our world into their digital one. This is like having the ability to shape being from non-being at the subatomic level, and the first thing you decide to make is AIDS.
