I think "stupid" is kind of a strong characterization, don't you? All 
of my eBooks are personalized, and I don't see how an honest person 
intending to follow copyright law could object to his book being 
marked "Prepared exclusively for John Smith".

I looked at and saw nothing giving the 
explicit right to share an eBook like a physical book. So I've written 
O'Reilly to find out what rights they explicitly grant and don't grant.
