The message refers to digital rights assigned to the ebook by the
publisher. Check those rights and see whether they allow distribution.
The rights assigned seem to be the same as the rights I've assigned before. Base permissions and distribution permissions are effectively the same.
Is the problems in those permissions, or elsewhere?

First off this is a Content Server question instead of a Digital Editions question - you will get better results in the future by asking in the forum.
The error, E_LIC_NO_DISTRIBUTION_RIGHTS comes from means that the triple <distributor, resourceid, type> that you asked for in the signed URL (or .acsm file if you are generating that yourself) in the Distribution Rights table on Content Server.
The two most common errors are that the distributor just doesnt have rights to sell the book ( no pair distributor/resourceid), or that you are using the wrong type (buy vs loan vs free vs something else).
The URL that the distributor is on has nothing to do with this error.
Thanks for this. I didn't realize I was in the wrong forum. I'll do some more research and see what I can learn. I expect I'll need help, though -- I have the right to see the books (unless there's something my ACS vendor needs to do as well), and I'm using the buy type as far as I can tell.
The answer to the problem lay in the config.xml file for the new site store I'm setting up. The store was copied from another site, and the config.xml file had the info for the original distributor. For the new site I created a new distributor but didn't realize that the config file needed updating. Once I updated the config file and refreshed my inventory on the new site, everything was fine.
