What is Adobe DRM protection?
There is a restriction on the number of devises on which a user can read Adobe DRM protected e-books. The number of devices is 12: 6 PC / Mac and 6 Tablerts / Smartphones. This number is enough to avoid a restriction and protects the creators of trafficking. In order to read Adobe DRM protected books, the user needs to register on Toubis Editions and obtain a personal Adobe Id (by Adobe) and a specific software (for PC / MAC is the Adobe Digital Editions and for Tablets & Smartphones is CosmoteBooks application). All software are available for FREE. On CosmoteBooks, there is a specific indication, for all Adobe DRM protected books. If you read on e-readers, consult the manufacturer's instructions in order to verify that your e-reader opens Adobe DRM protected books. The vast majority is compatible. Amazon's Kindle is NOT a compatible device.
All books offered on CosmoteBooks are Adobe DRM protected?
No. Most of them are Adobe DRM portected but there are also free e-books and for the free books there is no restriction regarding the number of devices. All free books have no protection.
