comment Can I lend out a Library Book?
I assumed it was a public library, but I'm not sure if it would be different for a private one, unless they say so. (a) they collect payment from whoever took it out, so that shouldn't matter to them. (b) the member still needs to be the one to take it. if it's a physical item, i think that's enough to motivate people to get membership. so I don't think Netflix tries to prevent people from lending their borrowed DVDs, but it might not want them lending their online subscription.

comment Saving a Life During Tefillah
There is also the case of Chilul Hashem. Even if its not a mass attempt, if soemone is forcing a Jew to sin (for the sake of sinning) in front of 10 Jews, it is also Yehareg v'al y'avor.

comment Are late or overdue fees Ribbis?
Renting and ribbis. R'Resiman has a chapter on it: books.google.com/… In general, renting is muttar, but not if there's no wear-and-tear or risk of damage.

comment Are late or overdue fees Ribbis?
He mentions how a series of fees may be more of an issue, though it may be slightly different in this case.
