The Book Elf to Launch eBook Sharing Venture

July 1, 2013

The Book Elf will be launching an eBook sharing venture on July 15, 2013. Initially, users will only be able to share works within the public domain. The organizers behind this social network have a long-term goal of giving users the option to share copyrighted books.

“In order to allow legal sharing of copyrighted works, The Book Elf will create a new eBook license that allows authors and publishers who adopt it to make their copyrighted eBooks shareable through through the site. The Book Elf will approach independent authors and publishers with this new model first. Instead of using DRM file formats which create a poor user experience, The Book Elf will build DRM into the website itself to prevent copies from proliferating.” more at Digital Book World▸▸
