The nook will read both Adobe DRM as well as B&N DRM, kobo decided not to support B&N DRM, so you can not read B&N ebooks on a kobo
It's not a new rule; it is Barnes and Noble corporate policy: no Nooks outside of the US. I'd love to see source of the B&N quote you cite.
So, I guess I am out of luck even buying commercial titles from them if I can only read them on a PC without breaking DRM. However, the fact that many Nook titles are now available for sale to a Canadian IP address attached to a Canadian shipping address and a Canadian credit card -- and definitely were not before -- suggests either a glitch in their software or more likely signing new deals with publishers to extend their selling territory beyond the US.
