■ Comment from Mr. Matsui, Direct Sales Service Section, Ohmsha Co., Ltd. As a privilege for regular subscription members, we wanted to provide a service that allows easy viewing of the electronic versions of the four monthly magazines, including back issues. By adopting bookend’s all-you-can-read service, it is possible to clear issues such as copyright management with personal authentication using the email address applied for by the member, and a secure DRM function that supports multiple platforms. It is very popular because it can be viewed on a PC or a smartphone / tablet when going out.
