Sell Kindle EbooksSelling Kindle Ebooks
Trying to enforce these copyrights nevertheless could violate the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) - which could result in heavy sanctions - and Amazon may attempt to withdraw your right to use all of your work. Amazons website on e-book loans states that only certain "borrowable" titles ("borrowability" is set by the publisher) can only be borrowed once, only within the United States, for a maximum a fortnight.
This is a pitiful (and failed) effort to reproduce what has always been a very lifelike part of the print work. As for the rigorous analogue, Kindle DRM even forbids you from putting your textbooks on another rack. Every DRMed textbook you buy for the Kindle is bound to your Kindle forever until Amazon makes a different decision (and they show no signs of abandoning this control).
When someone else makes another e-book reader for the Kindle (one that maybe also gives writers a better deal), the Kindle will stick with the book unless they want to buy back the ones they have already purchased. Amazon uses DRM like Apple and iPod to build lock-in: you don't want to use competitive third-party music.
However, DRM affects you even if you do not try to copy or move your work. We have strong suspicions that Amazon also has the ability to look at and erase non-Amazon book from a distance. It' not a plot - we know that this is possible because Amazon previously removed 1984 prints from users' children.
It' s only meant to do this when it gets a ruling, but do you want your accounts to be susceptible? For this reason we have chosen to name the Kindle the Fraud, and we would like to encourage you all to join us to mark the Kindle and all DRMed Kindle ebooks on Amazon.com with the sentence "Kindle Swindle".
" 1 ] Even if non-Kindle DRM e-book designs purport to let you loan ebooks to a buddy depending on their names, this isn't really lending. a... You have to ask your friends to sign a separate agreement with the vendor and have a specific type of equipment.
It is our aim to make sure that the DRMed ebooks are only marked as faulty.
Naturally, Amazon does not make this simple. This indicates an e-book that does not have DRM.
