Glad to see this. Companies shouldn't be able to avoid copyleft obligations. Licensing applies to everyone, not just the little people they want to use it against.

The SFC isn't even looking for damages, they just want the current rules enforced.

Bookmarked: US Senate Finance Committee Presses Publishers on Library Ebook Contracts

I'm glad this is being looked into, but I'm not sure what this committee can do. Platform exclusivity sucks, but it's perfectly legal. Same with the ridiculous licensing restrictions. I'd love to see special protections for ebooks, and all digital media, but unfortunately I can't see that happening.
