Abstract

e-Book reading is very popular in nowadays so that people often use their laptop, smart phone or specific e-book reader (e.g. Amazon Kindle, iRex iLiad, and Apple iPad) to read anywhere. However, users always encounter the obstacles such as switching to different mobile devices and synchronizing the latest reading history. In this research, we proposed a separated license methodology to achieve the purpose of content roaming in order to not only overcome the users’ obstacles, but also provide total technical solution to ebook businesses. The methodology includes four processes: 1) license release and deployment; 2) licenses verification; 3) content transfer and 4) tracking user’s records, enabling user to transmit their licenses offline. Grounded on the research contribution, both the demand side and the supply side in ebook market could benefit from the seamless reading convenience and the copyright issues.
