Changes to permissions for Pearson ebooks on the Ebook Central platform.
Pearson have made changes to the digital rights management (DRM) policies which restrict what users can do with Pearson ebooks on the Ebook Central platform. For existing licences the permissions remain at 5% print, copy and paste. However, from 1 December 2020 onwards, the permissions will be 0% for any new licences or titles purchased by libraries.
We are working with the sector regarding such unsatisfactory restrictions which are being levied on education and research.
