Download Issue

I got the free friday book today and it won't download.  I get the following message "unable to download.  internal error; internal error during license generation"

 

Any suggestions would be helpful.

 

Thanks

What bklvr said.

 

In another thread lots of people are having the same problem. And one of them said that CS told them it's related to server problems. So try tomorrow. If you've bought the book it's in your account. It won't run away. Also Free Friday book is usually free until Sunday night. So waiting a day won't hurt.

In this particular case, it might. The publisher, Night Shade Books, is closing down. It'll probably be impossible to download or re-download Night Shade titles once they've pulled the plug.

The book downloaded for me this morning and I was also seeing the error yesterday.

Re: Download Issue

thanks for the information Doug Pardee. Does B&N not get to keep a permanent copy?

It's possible, if the terms were negotiated that way, but it's unlikely.

Good to know.

 

Does anyone know if thsi is a trend? Books on Board closing down. Nightshade books closing down.

 

Or just two random occurrences?

 

I would have assumed that as people shifted to ebooks companies would do better. No?

Well, Books on Board is a bookstore, and they claim they're not closing down, just restructuring.  Nightshade books is a publisher, and small pubs turn over all the time.  So no, I don't think there's a new trend, just the usual - small pub turnover, bookstores struggling.
