Viewing eBook permissions
All Adobe eBooks you purchase and download have permissions built in as
part of their DRM (Digital Rights Management) architecture. These permis-
sions are set by the publisher of the eBook and specify how many times you
can print and copy an eBook, as well as the eBook expiration date. To view
permissions set for a particular eBook, open the eBook from My Bookshelf
and choose File➪Document Properties. In the Document Properties dialog
box that appears, choose Security in the list box to display the Security set-
tings for your selected eBook.
Migrating eBooks from Adobe Acrobat eBook Reader
Adobe provides a utility on the DRM Activator Web site that enables you to
migrate eBooks you’ve previously purchased using the Adobe Acrobat eBook
Reader into My Bookshelf. Note that if you don’t use this utility to move pre-
viously purchased eBooks into My Bookshelf, you’ll have no choice but to
use Acrobat eBook Reader in order to access these older books, and because
the program has been discontinued, future compatibility is not guaranteed.
To download this valuable utility, go online to the Adobe DRM Activator Web
site by choosing Tools➪eBook Web Services➪Adobe DRM Activator in Adobe
Reader, or by choosing Advanced➪eBook Web Services➪Adobe DRM Activator
in Acrobat 6. After signing in (see the preceding section, “Using the Adobe DRM
Activator”), click the appropriate link on the Adobe DRM Activator Web page
(Windows and Macintosh versions of the migration utility are provided) to
download the migration utility to your computer. After your selected version of
the utility is downloaded, you can run the application to migrate your Adobe
Acrobat eBook library to My Bookshelf. Note that when you run this utility, you
cannothave Adobe Reader or Acrobat 6 open. If either program is open, an
alert dialog box will stop the process and tell you to close those programs and
run the migration utility again. When the process is finished, your old library
eBooks will then be recognized in My Bookshelf.
