eBooks continue to see tremendous growth in the marketplace, with analyst firm Yankee Group forecasting last week 83% growth in ebook sales year-over-year through 2013. To meet this increasing interest in eBooks, we’re changing the way customers can license Content Server 4, one of the key elements of our Digital Publishing Solution for eBooks. Previously available only direct from Adobe, we’ve engaged a handful of trusted resellers to license our eBook content protection solution. In North America, interested customers can contact Bluefire Productions or Datalogics for more information on Adobe’s cross-platform, interoperable eBook DRM.
In addition to this change, we’ve updated Content Server with a new service that streamlines the ebook authorization process. The new Content Server Vendor ID service integrates a retailer’s account management system with Content Server, allowing users to authenticate eBooks with an email address other than their Adobe ID. This new service streamlines the workflow for authorizing eBooks by eliminating the extra step of acquiring an Adobe ID.
