Allow international Amazon customers to lend Kindle books

GO AHEAD AND CLICK "LIKE" -- BUT PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION, TOO!

For two years, USA customers of Amazon.com have been able to loan many of their Kindle books to another reader for a period of 14 days (publishers decide whether to make individual titles lendable). However, international Amazon customers who have purchased their Kindle books through non-USA Kindle Stores are still not able to lend or borrow Kindle books with other Kindle users. Not only is this unfair to non-USA Kindle book buyers, but it deprives authors of a valuable way to be discovered by new international readers. Amazon should give international Kindle book buyers the same lending privileges as USA customers enjoy.

Allow international Amazon customers to lend Kindle books

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I've always lent books from my library and don't see why this should be any different with e-books. Tired of living in Canada and not having the same privileges as those in the US.

      Surely a good next step, just like paper books.
