Yes, this is a licence problem but you were asking for non DRM.

Many readers supports epub and mobi format together but only one format with DRM (mostly epub) - for example Pocketbook ...
Many? And have you ever tried reading a mobi book on a Pocketbook? Pocketbook uses FBReader for mobi files and it does a very bad job. Besides other things you can't use any mobi dictionaries.

Bookeen has developed its own reader software (BooReader) based on the original MobiPocket Reader, which Amazon later bought. Obviously they are not allowed to use it in newer devices and maybe they have not the man power to develop a new independable mobi reader or to implement this feature into their epub reader. I personally don't find the lack of reading mobi files as a problem - you can always convert using Calibre.
