The current DRM implementation does not allow you to view the books on more than one computer.
A quick follow up:
Does the DRM implementation allow for backup and restore of ebooks? What is the correct procedure regarding Adobe ebooks when you buy a new computer and want to continue reading them?
Simply put, they do not have a procedure. I'm stuck with the same problem. I've purchased an e-book online and can't view it on other machines. Even more, the publisher won't let me print it (I still prefer reading it on paper), so I always need to be next to my machine.
This DRM sucks, I'm sorry to say.
We are working hard on a solution for this as I type. Please see the recent post on named activation.
I also just purchased an ebook online and what a stupid mistake i made, i will never buy another ebook again and Adobe's software, particularly this dumb Digital Editions Rubbish.
What good is it for portability when you cannot even transfer that ebook you purchased to another computer of yours especially your laptop?. I happened to have 6 pcs and one laptop in my home.
Please for sanity's sake fix this problem once and for all. We are NOT proud of your software anymore.
