Google Partners With Adobe For DRM

Google has implemented Adobe’s DRM tool as its eBook content protection system for Google eBooks.

Google has licensed Adobe’s Content Server to protect its books and at the same time let consumers buy or lend eBooks through without being tied to one store.

The Adobe press release has more: “With support of the Adobe Reader Mobile software development kit (SDK) on more than 85 devices and applications, consumers can download and read protected ebooks from Google eBooks in both PDF and EPUB format. Supported devices include a broad variety of platforms: smartphones, tablets and desktops, as well as dedicated reading devices like the Sony Reader or the Barnes & Noble nook.”
