Scholastic to Close Storia Ebookstore; Customers Could Lose Access to Their Ebook Purchases
Think you own those DRMed ebooks you buy? Not according to Scholastic.
This US publisher announced in April that they will be changing their Storia ebook platform from a retail service to a subscription service, and as part of that transition Scholastic recently announced that they are shutting down the retail side of the operation. They have quietly posted a notice on the Scholastic website:
With the launch of Storia School Edition on September 1, Scholastic will transition to a streaming model for children's eBook delivery.
