eBook Rules Are Different

An eBook isn’t quite like a “print” book. Once you pay for a print book, you can pretty much do what you want with it—sell it, give it away, burn it, whatever!

With eBooks, though, the rules are a little different. You’re not allowed to copy, sell, or share an eBook. (You could burn it, but I wouldn’t recommend that! Not good for the environment—or your laptop!)

eBooks are also non-transferable and non-refundable. Sort of like airline tickets—you’ve got a one way ticket to ride, but it’s gonna be a great trip!
