The blessings of the internet are numerous.
If I only limit it to the role that the internet plays in the distribution of knowledge, I dare to speak of a dream scenario. Never before have so many people had easy access to so much knowledge. And for free in many cases.
I count our blessings and am satisfied.
There is a but.
We try to earn a living by publishing books, mainly academic publications. In addition to the paper version, we also publish books as ebook.
We like to work customer friendly and therefore choose not to work for a user-unfriendly solution where the purchaser first needs to download the needed software before the purchased can be used. Also, we choose not to use software that restricts the buyer’s possibilities of using the purchased on different devices to set.
Of course, you can also use a watermark so that the road to the buyer can be traced if the book suddenly pops up on a site.
