Wherein, for the protection through a serial number, you need to set a Registry Key.  When your e-Book is opened on a user's computer, the e-Book will record the time at which the user fisrt views the e-Book, in the registry list.  Therefore, you should set a Registry Key that is not easily found, to save this information, for instance,  SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main.
