Wizards of the Coast abandons ebook PDF format

Wizards of the Coast has halted all production of Dungeons and Dragons publications in electronic format. In an expedited motion, WotC has issued a statement that  Adobe (Acrobat) scanned publications will no longer be made available to the public from their website or their distributors.

According to WotC President Leeds, the decision was devised as a counter-measure to the level of piracy toward illicit copies of 4th edition materials in electronic media format.

This was a summary decision to include all editions of D&D, including out-of-print editions and accessories; however Leeds supports “alternate” digital technologies for WotC RPG accessories (e.g. Kindle) which will include legacy TSR products. The interview is available at enWorld:
