What's DRM?

Digital Rights Management (DRM) is used by some publishers to control copyright. DRM can restrict the amount of material you print, download, or copy. It can also limit the time you have access to online content: you might have to check out an ebook, or links you send in an email to full-text content expire.

Not all publishers apply DRM to their content. Those who don't still expect users to comply with existing copyright terms and restrictions.

For the publishers who do apply DRM, there may be additional steps you'll have to take to access content.

Several providers require Adobe® Digital Editions software.

There are several ebook reader apps available. Bluefire Reader app is recommended for iOS and Android mobile devices.
