My understanding was that Apple wrote a tool for creating content. Then
Apple put in the contract that you can only use it for iBooks.  The
software was NOT designed for one purpose. It is general purpose. The
limitation is imposed entirely by the license. That is deceitful.

If Apple wants a truly one purpose application, then they can design it
that way. Make the software only connect with iBooks. Don't offer any
export options. Apple chose a faulty design and then put the burden on me.
