This is something that is very difficult for me to post.
I feel that it may help just a few who visit here and I certainly will not give any info that could help anyone beat digital or other legitimate security.
If anyone sells or is aiming to sell ebooks or e-lecture notes on the Net and they are thinking of using digital locking software to restrict its unauthorised spread, be warned that some software that is sold at fairly high prices is not real good (to put it mildly!).
I will not give further details here or by private email, sorry. This is just to hopefully prevent some authors spending good dollars for such "protection" without giving them notice that they need more information than they might find on the sales pages.
You should ask for referrals to satisfied customers though I understand that even the bad ones I have heard about have some of those.
Ignorance, as they say, is bliss.

Actually, that's something quite different. I was referring to programs that are sold to people who are selling digital ebooks and, I think, software from their sites.

Some of the protection programs do not provide much protection from illegal copies being made.

I have heard a rumor that there will soon be at least one reliable system but there has been no announcement yet so I can't say anything.

With regard to buyers of digital books being loaded with extra charges, that's plain illegal.

You should contact the seller immediately and, if the amount is more than just a few dollars, I would also contact my credit card company with a copy of your email to the seller.

After a few days, to allow for time zones, weekends and such, I would send a reminder email copy that to the card service that the seller uses; ClickBank, PayPal, 2CheckOut or whoever.

With most sellers, that should be enough.

I am currently rebuilding my and sites after an autoresponder service I was using went off-line permanently so everything SHOULD be fine when I release the new book.

But I hope that anyone that has any difficulty with my sites will let me know in a polite manner.

Magic (and ebook) dealers are only human, despite strong rumors to the contrary.
