Auto expiration of ebook

Medtutor After a user enters a password he gets acess to my book. Can I have my book expire after a few months even after entering a password. I teach for medical board exams and i want them to have access to the information only for a few months after they buy the book depending on the duration of time that they pay for. Is there a way to do that using the ebook compiler... by the way its a great software....

EBookCompiler I think the trick is

1. Don't use the built-in expiry feature

2. Use 2 scripts

(a) First script is run after entering the correct password, and stores the time the correct password is entered

(b) Second script is run whenever the ebook is started
-- if no correct password is entered does nothing
-- if correct password is entered, calculates time elapsed, and if time is up, displays a message and exits

The script in this thread, is close to what you need but needs some modification for your specific requirements
