VA Law Helps Students Buy Online

This year, the Virginia State Legislature passed a law requiring all public universities to post students' book lists online. This law, intended to give students greater flexibility when choosing which market to buy their books (essentially to undercut the bookstore's inherent competitive advantage) has helped both students and online sellers. Moreover, according one article, it seems university bookstores aren't doing so bad themselves as total sales revenue continues to increase.
