Apple, Amazon Offer Family Sharing For Digital Media | Re/code

I'm guessing not all publishers are thrilled about this

"So here’s one of those pleasant surprises: Both Apple and Amazon are going to let their customers share stuff they’ve bought from their digital storefronts with family members. Just like you can in real life.

In what is likely not a coincidence, both companies are using similar terms to describe their programs, and both are coming out around the same time. Apple calls its plan “Family Sharing,” and it’s available to people who are using its new iOS 8 software that rolled out today. Amazon calls its plan “Family Library,” and it will be available at the end of October, along with a new set of hardware and software updates the company just announced."
