8. Import vs. Download

"Import" is a specific type of download. It differs from the traditional download in the following aspects.

  1. The traditional download transfers the ebook file in its original form, whereas the imported file has been processed.
  2. The downloaded file is present in the file explorer whereas the imported ebook contents are saved in a local database known as "IndexedDB".
  3. The imported ebooks are automatically protected against unauthorized distribution, as no ebook file is present in local reading devices.
  4. The imported ebook will open immediately without any password, since no digital rights management (DRM) is necessary to lock their contents.
  5. BSON books use "import" to transfer their contents. Therefore, even if a person can somehow obtain the original BSON file, it cannot be read unless distributed from our website.
