With that in mind, ContentGuard launched Tuesday an eBook practice aimed at online bookstores and publishers. The practice encompasses a range of services including the ability to completely outsource a company's eBook distribution process, Singh said. The practice, part of ContentGuard's recently set up consulting services division, also features a consultancy operation to assist Net bookstores and publishers in both establishing and managing their eBook businesses.
Microsoft has chosen ContentGuard as its preferred eBook consulting practice, Singh said. ContentGuard is likely to establish other practices in the areas of video and audio in time, he added.
