This article is for CONTENT OWNERS.
A purchased licence gives the user a right to read and use that ebook (within DRM limitations, which include the period the licence is valid for).
When you distribute your content through Snapplify, we give you the flexibility to specify the licence period.
You can choose from three licensing periods:
- 1-year licence
- 3-year licence
- Perpetual licence
Each licence term provides the user with a different time period in which to access content, and should be priced according to the duration of that period.
These recommendations are based on what customers have come to expect:
Licence terms (for user)

± 20% less than your eRRP/DLP

Using EAN numbers to differentiate between licences
If you would like to provide different licensing options for a title, you can do so as follows:
- Provide a unique EAN number for each title
- This can be achieved by appending an identifier to the standard EAN.
The example below shows three different licences for the same title. Please note the identifier appended to each EAN to make it unique for each licence term.
|EAN Example||Title||Licence term|
|9780801448157||The Lord of the Rings||Perpetual licence|
|9780801448157_3y||The Lord of the Rings (3-year licence)||3-year licence|
|9780801448157_1y||The Lord of the Rings (1-year licence)||1-year licence|
