Can I print an eBook (and other digital rights management issues)?
Yes. Mountaineers Books places no restrictions on any eBook we sell directly that would prevent printing. Generally, if you plan to print the pages of your eBook, we recommend you purchase the PDF version as ePubs are generally not well-suited to printing.

Be aware that our PDF eBooks come with a watermark at the bottom of each page, which says that the eBook is the "property of (your name)". This watermark is as minimal a method of applying digital rights management (DRM) as there is, while still trying to assure our authors that their work won't end up on a pirate website somewhere.

Regarding DRM, please note that Mountaineers Books has no control over the DRM that other retailers apply to the books you purchase from them. If you buy eBook versions of Mountaineers Books titles from other retailers, they may come with restrictions that we're not even aware of. Be sure to read their DRM policies to know what has been applied.

Can I download my eBook onto two different computers?
Yes. If you buy your ebook directly from Mountaineers Books, yes. We place no restrictions on the files we sell directly. If you purchase your ebook from another retailer, the title may come with additional restrictions.
