E Books and Site License

Dear Paul

Thanks for your reply, i highly appreciate that, your reply was very help full as i am planning to get few books (Electronic or printed, will decide which option is more afordable)..Can you plz answer

1: Can i print more then 1 copy and give it to others.??? As it is mentioned on O'rielly site "Unlike most other retailers, ebooks from shop.oreilly.com are not restricted. You can freely loan, re-sell or donate them, read them without being tracked, or move them to a new device without re-purchasing all of them."

2: As you mentioned that i can purchase a bundle of Print or Ebook, how can i purchase a bundle??? do i need to only increase the number of books when i will purchase OR is there any other specific option to choose bundle????

3: As i read on O'rielly site

"You are not allowed to place the content on a server for downloading, and you should purchase a site license if you wish to share the PDF with a group of developers on an Intranet."

What would be the price for Site License to share PDF with 6-10 Developers for lets say 2-6 books?????

and how it would be done practically (i mean if i buy license then would there be a link placed on my site with login details for each developer who want to access those books????

would you guys charge monthly or annually????

would i be able to change access right for deveopers????

plz let me know in details abt this option......

4:If i want to get PDF, how i am going to select PDF as there is no option to select a specific format when you purchae an ebook?????

5: After i will enter my credit card details, how long it will take to get ebook that i purchased???

i will appreciate for your kind reply

  • Hello m,

    Following are answers to your questions:

    1: Can i print more then 1 copy and give it to others.???

    No, we don't allow you to distribute multiple printed copies. You can loan your copy.

    2: As you mentioned that i can purchase a bundle of Print or Ebook, how can i purchase a bundle??? do i need to only increase the number of books when i will purchase OR is there any other specific option to choose bundle????

    There is a specific option to include the ebook + print bundle. It's right beneath the ebook only option on each book's catalog page.

    3: What would be the price for Site License to share PDF with 6-10 Developers for lets say 2-6 books?????

    I will direct your question to my colleague Leslie Crandell. She'll be in touch w/ you.

    4:If i want to get PDF, how i am going to select PDF as there is no option to select a specific format when you purchae an ebook?????

    You can select from any available format once you've purchased the ebook. Most books have the option of pdf, epub, and mobi. You can download any or all of them.

    5: After i will enter my credit card details, how long it will take to get ebook that i purchased???

    You can download the ebook immediately after purchase.

    Thanks for your questions, --Allen

  • Hello m-

    Thank you for contacting us. If you are looking to purchase multiple copies of ebooks we offer a 50% discount off the ebook digital list when you order 5-99 copies (titles can be mixed). Each person can have a copy of the ebook file for their own computer or personal device. We can either give you one copy of each ebook to distribute or you can provide each person's name and email address and we can set them up with their ebook copies.

    When you are ready to move forward please email me at lcrandell@oreilly.com with the titles and quantities. If your paying by credit card we can take care of the details by phone if that is convenient for you.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Regards,
    Leslie

  • m-

    Sorry, I misunderstood. The 50% discount is off the purchase of the ebook alone. When you asked about a site license I thought you were looking to just purchase the ebook version for your team. If you are purchasing a bundle with the print/ebook combined a discount as already been applied in the print/ebook list price that's posted to our site, so we aren't able to take a further discount.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.
    Regards,
    Leslie

  • Hi L

    Thanks, i will feel more comfortable dealing with you, Cant you deliver yourself as here we are talking about Ebooks so it does not really matter, i mean here we are not dealing with physical books. Yah i can understand if its Orielly policy that client from SA would be served from UK only. Plz comment??? bec i dont want things getting changed as new person gets into the picture and then i have to start over again...

    Please also answer:

    What information, beside ebooks, you will be sending to my developers ???? Would you be sending prices of each title to my developers???? as i dont want them to know how much i am paying for each title. yah i want them to know that books are being delivered from Orielly and we have a Site Licence etc with Orielly.

    PLZ let me know any other thing that we have not discussed yet as i dont want any surprise in the middle of things. my understanding is that i will be sending you name and quantity for each title and name and email of my developers and my credit card details. you will take Max one day to sort out every thing and ebooks would be delivered in a day or two But not more than that...These ebooks would be in PDF format and other formats as well so my developers could use them at different devices (kindlke etc) if they want..... AM i right???
    PLEASE let me know if i misunderstood any thing....
