Can I get a backup copy of my books?

You cannot get a copy of your books for use outside of the Blackwell’s platform, in order to adhere with our DRM (Digital Rights Management) policy, as detailed below.

  • Downtime

If our servers experience downtime you will not be able to buy books, read books in the web-viewer or use the search function in our apps.  You will be able to read all the books you have previously downloaded to your iOS and Android devices. You will also still be able to create bookmarks and add notes to your books.  

  • Digital Rights Management

We implement Digital Rights Management to protect the copyright of the books in our system. This means that you can only access your content within Blackwell's apps and the web-reader. We cannot supply eBook files outside of the framework of our apps and readers.
