It depends. Some publishers have very strict limits on printing and downloading. You might be able to save a few pages or copy a short section and paste it into a document. Some publishers do allow downloading of an ebook or book chapters. Sometimes you can download the ebook to an iPad or other device. With some ebooks, chapters or sections open as separate PDF documents. You can usually save these documents.
How can you tell if the ebook is downloadable? When you have the ebook open on your computer, look around the screen for links to information on downloading and look through the command menus for downloading/saving options.
