The Sony Reader and iLiad – the latest eBook Reader devices – have created a furore in the world of intellectual property and information technology law. This paper will initially re-address the longstanding eBook debate and address the more complicated legal issues arising from these latest devices with particular reference being made to the Sony Reader. Since plenty of attention has been lavished on the music industry and online digital music distribution it is the aim to explore a relatively unexplored area of the eBook Reader and the 'paperless word' and the legal challenges faced by the eBook industry.
