Cyberwolf, the developers of Acumen Book, is now offering an eBook download service to publishers. This service allows publishers to sell DRM protected eBooks directly to their customers. With eBooks protected by Adober Content Server (the same DRM used by Barnes & Nobles, Google and Sony eReaders) publishers can select the level of DRM that they want to use.
What is it?
The CyberWolf Download Service™ (CDS) allows you to sell DRM protected ebooks and digital content directly from your own ecommerce site. Your digital products are set up and maintained through our easy to use web-based interface.
The CDS uses Adobe® Content Server (ACS) technology to package either PDF or ePub files with DRM protections. Emerging as the standard for DRM protection in the publishing industry, ACS DRM is also supported by Barnes & Noble, Google Editions, and Simon & Schuster, among other industry players.
In addition to ACS DRM protections, the CDS offers a social DRM option that stamps a standard PDF prior to download with a predefined but dynamic message. Stamps appear on each PDF page in the location and formatting you select. Messages can include variables populated with order information, such as the name or email address of the purchaser. With the social DRM approach, there are no technological restrictions on your customer’s ability to share or copy content. Since content pages contain a stamp that identifies the specific purchaser, inappropriate use – such as posting content on a file sharing site – is less likely to occur.
