Somebody purchased a campus-license/site-license copy of The Big Deal and the Damage Done yesterday or this morning.
That’s the fifth such sale. I count each such sale as the equivalent of four copy sales. The book might yet reach 100 copy-equivalents before it goes out of print.
In any case, it’s appreciated and I trust the campus/consortium/whatever will find it useful.
As noted in this post, The Big Deal and the Damage Done will go out of print on or about May 14, 2014.
Since some of you dealing with ebooks may read “out of print” as “will disappear,” I should clarify–as I did in the earlier post:
Cites & Insights Books do not have DRM. Ever.
Once you’ve downloaded a Cites & Insights Book, it’s yours. To keep, sell, give away, lend, backup as often as you want, transfer to multiple PDF-reading devices, whatever.
Of course, you won’t be able to download a new copy from Lulu after it goes off sale, but the copy or copies you’ve purchased–including ones with explicit permission for multiple simultaneous downloads/reading–will not be affected in any way.
[Worth noting again that, in fact, Lulu no longer supports or allows DRM on the PDFs that it sells. But it was always an option and I never chose the option.]
