How could e-books be published and sold

Everything about e-books - Part 1: Create e-books

If you want to create and publish your own e-book, you also have to consider a few legal points - above all that copyright. If you want to use third-party content - whether quotes, images, photos, videos or graphics - in your electronic book, this requires the consent of the rights holder and appropriate labeling in the book. The legal situation is less clear when it comes to this imprint goes. There is no uniform, transnational regulation - and especially if you want to publish your e-book under a pseudonym, it becomes problematic. To be on the safe side, you should add an imprint to your work, using the usual website imprint as a guide. You can find information on the required information and the placement of the imprint here.

If you offer your e-book for sale, it is also your duty to do so Right of withdrawal for at least 14 days and duly inform your buyers about it. These regulations do not apply if you sell exclusively to companies. Commercial e-books are usually also provided with a special copy protection that defines which actions are allowed with the purchased book. The procedure that is used for this is called Digital rights management (DRM) and prevents or controls, for example, resale, copying or printing. Copy protection systems include available for Adobe (PDF, ePUB) and Amazon (AZW, KFX). The DRM of your e-book therefore depends on the format or platform you choose to sell your book on.
