Adobe Digital Editions is an engaging new way to read and manage eBooks and other digital publications. Digital Editions is built from the ground up as a lightweight, Rich Internet Application (RIA). Digital Editions works online and offline, and supports PDF and XHTML—based content as well as Flash SWF for rich interactivity.
Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) is free software that lets you add eBooks from a public library, eBooks from another store that are protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM)
DRM prevents the unauthorized copying or redistribution of eBooks to protect the rights of authors and publishers. If you downloaded a book protected by DRM, you’ll get a license in the form of an .acsm file with your book. You’ll then use ADE to add the DRM-protected content to your eReader.
