          No, and ebooks bought through Amazon are not compatible with Adobe Digital Editions

              Jim,

                I am new to the Adobe Digital Edition/Adobe Content Server world but do have DRM experience in the music space.  As I anticipate a large portion of the ebook sales to be read on some type of Apple i-device, I am trying to understand why ebooks from ACS4 will not be readable on the i-devices.

               

              Could you help clarify for me the issues at hand with getting ebooks with Adobe DRM onto i-devices?  Is it correct to understand the an ebook from say booksonboard.com that is in the form of epub and served from ACS4 will not be readable on say an iTouch (or any i-device) because the client application (Adobe Digital Edition) used to work with content served by ACS4 is using some Flash and because Apple is not being friendly and doesnt support Flash we have a roadblock here?

               

              Thanks,
