This is correct. My personal process is to download the epub, load it into ADE, go to the ADE download folder, strip the DRM, move the (now) DRM free epub to my own purchased folder to back up the book and then move a copy onto my Kobo to read. It sounds like an extensive process but it only takes about 5 minutes (actually less than that I believe). BTW I bypass Calibre using a stand alone program for the DRM stripping. Personal preference.
