What is an eBook?

Also known as an electronic book or e-book, it is a book publication made available in digital form that is read either on a computer, mobile device, or e-reader designed specifically for eBook use. While eBooks are often an electronic version of a printed book, they might also be published only in digital form. Because they are intended to be read online or downloaded to an electronic device, the printing of eBooks is discouraged and in many instances could be a violation of copyright law and/or publisher or distributor licensing agreements .
