Removal of the “Print Chapter” view from all medical Access sites
Last week, only a few days after it had posted to AccessMedicine, the newest version of Harrison’s was discovered circulating on a number of digital lockers, torrent sites, and other means of illicit file sharing. A quick examination of the file revealed that the party (or parties) who had created it simply printed every chapter of Harrison’s, “bound” it as an ebook, and started distributing it. Presently, the “Print Chapter” view makes it far too easy to accomplish a task like this.
To address this issue with digital piracy, we will remove the "Print Chapter” option on all Access medical online products. This is scheduled to be effective Thursday, September 1 on AccessMedicine and then to each subsequent site with its next release. We realize this will not stop piracy dead in its tracks. We do hope, however, that it will make it more difficult for those inclined to illegally redistribute our content, while still making our sites easy to use, as users will still be able to print by section.
If you have questions about this change in functionality, please contact your sales representative at firstname.lastname@example.org.
