Owners have specific rights on their content you can't remove. The action includes:
- Refresh Extract
- Change Owner
- Set permissions if not locked to the project
Actually, I found in the documentation that owners get full access to theirs content (How Permissions are Evaluated).
We would like to remove these rights too, so I am interested in an answer if any solution exists.
yeah, I kind of figured as much. I really want to have the download ability for owners who create content online removed. There won't be a need for our users who create content online to download their books, they should only be allowed online usage.
Hopefully, someone else can help clear up a better way to get this accomplished. I need to have users have the ability to create books online, but NOT be able to download them.

A content owner of a Workbook or Published Data Source has 'full rights' of that object.
AFAIK, there is no way to restrict this.
The only option is to change the ownership of that object to another account, so that that the publisher only has 'normal' rights. Using a unlicensed account is a good option, so that only admins are able to download.
This can only be done after something has been published, though.
By querying the repository, you could build a dashboard showing workbooks where the ownership is not correctly set, and manually change them.
Or, you can use the REST API to script this process, so that it can be done on a schedule.
Hope this helps
Thanks Glen !
