How much of an eBook can I print?
This answer is applicable to borrowable eBooks available through Scholars Portal Books.
The amount of a book that can be copied or printed depends on the publisher, but in many cases the amount is 20% of the book (i.e. if a book is 200 pages from cover-to-cover, you may print up to 40 pages).
You can view the exact number of pages you may print from within your Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) or Bluefire reader. In ADE, right-click on a book and choose 'Item Info':
You will see the number of pages that can be downloaded, as well as the number of 'copy actions' that are allowed.
In Bluefire, choose the 'list' display option, then select the arrow on the right-hand side of the list:
Bluefire will only tell you if printing is allowed or not. If it states 'Allowed,' you should assume you may print 20% of the book.
