What's the status of devices that were distributed by the city in April for students to learn remotely? If it's not being used anymore can I keep it? Can I give it to someone else?

Sure, the mishna lists cases of lending fruit and repaying with more fruit

If people stand around reading the papers off the rack at the supermarket & the owner keeps passing by & doesn't say anything, would that make it muttar l’katcheila, b’dieved, or still assur ?

The store owner isn't the only party to this

Maybe the reason why he keeps passing by is a nice hint ::)

Its usually at the entrance or right outside. The owner comes & goes.

The publisher
Is this up to the publisher to not/allow ?

Normally they aren't the ones who are makpid. It's generally the store owners who are.

I have seen many signs outside stores asking people not to. You never see in the publications themselves forbidding people, like you see with music artists who ask people not to copy music.

Why do you say that?

Also, where would you draw the line? I'm guessing that if a parent buys a magazine then their child can also read it. But what about a married child who comes to visit or just a regular Shabbos guest? Imagine telling them, "Sorry, you can't read that coz you didn't buy it!"  ??? ???

Why not? They are losing the sale.
