FileOpen - The British Library's preferred DRM service.

Whilst the key benefit of using FileOpen is that it is easy to install and there are no forced upgrades, one additional driver for customers' adoption of FileOpen is that it supports JPEG2000, the new high quality picture format used by many publishers, whereas Adobe Digital Editions does not.

FileOpen is a simple, safe and fully compliant DRM tool that is compatible with every version of Adobe Reader from version 4 and is the most popular DRM tool for document supply companies around the world. We are advising customers to install the free FileOpen Plug-in, download our test document, and register with us to begin using the service. Please download our  FileOpen installation guide PDF for full details.
