Actually, I'm pretty sure that's the same way it is everywhere... not just France. I know that's the way it has been in the US for quite a while, anyway. If it says nothing... it has DRM, and is limited to 6 devices/apps simultaneously (usually).

It is in France impossible for a customer to check the presence of DRMs given the informations on the detailed description page.
Are you absolutely sure there's no examples of:
"Simultaneous Device Usage: Unlimited" In some book descriptions on amazon.fr? Those books are DRM free. Check public domain works to be sure.

Generally speaking:
1) If there is no mention of Simultaneous Device Usage in the book description -- the book has DRM and is limited to 6 devices/apps simultaneously.
2) If there is a Simultaneous Device Usage: x line in the book description -- the book has DRM and is limited to x devices/apps
3) If it says Simultaneous Device Usage: Unlimited in the book description -- the book has no DRM
