You've got the right idea. Since there are 1,000 possible passwords there is a 0.1% chance that any two computers will share the same password/registration-code.
My thinking is that I want a user to share the ebook with friends. When the friend opens the ebook on their computer they will see the unregistered version of your ebook. You can even encourage users to share the ebook with friends since the friends will always (sans the 0.1% that share the same password) see the unregistered version.
I believe I saw a feature in the product description which you can utalize which prevents people from copying, forwarding or printing a downloaded copy of the book. Can anyone confirm and relay their experiences using this feature? Thanks,
Yes, you can prevent someone from printing or using the left click mouse to select content to copy and paste. It is still possible (this includes all ebooks) for the user to screen capture content (screen captures are nothing more than a graphic of the page and is pretty much useless if the user wants to use the text).
As to the second part of your question about sharing copies of the ebook. Is there any reason you would not want the ebook to be shared IF the ebook is re-locked on the friend's computer? A lot of people consider this an advantage since friends can share an ebook with a friend, but the friend will see the same thing the orginal purchaser saw when they downloaded the ebook.
As far as the book relocking when forwarded to another computer. Cant the reciever just type in the password given to the original purchaser (assuming the purchaser tells it to him) and then unlock the book on his computer?
That's a good question. Activ has a possibility of 1,000 passwords. If you used only 100 passwords the possibility of any two users sharing the same password is 1 in a 100 or 1%. If you used all 1,000 passwords that would mean any two users would have a 0.1% probability of sharing the same password. I don't know about you, but those are odds that I can live with.
