Publisher License Agreement
desLibris offers a new option to publishers for licensing content directly to institutions, instructors, students or others requiring single or multiple copies of copyright materials for course use.
Here’s how it works:
Total publisher control; all transactions are controlled by the rights owner. Sales receipts flow directly to the rights owner’s account. There are no intermediaries and hence no discounts.
The simplicity of the licensing process promotes legal usage and reduces losses from secondary sales.
The new desLibris e-Reader renders PDF and ePUB.
Apps are available for IOS and Android devices; Microsoft coming in 2017.
The reader is available for download by any authenticated user of desLibris.
Because the reader is compliant with OPDS, books owned or borrowed from other Open Access sources like Open Library or Feedbooks may be included in an individual user's bookshelf.
The desLibris e-reader is built on the Sony DADC User Rights Management Solution, which is designed to support a wide variety of educational and library use cases, while giving content owners the most powerful eBook security on the market.
URMS features the same anti-tamper technology used to effectively protect video games such as Call of Duty and FIFA15, the kinds of products most targeted by hackers.
