Actually any ebook you buy or borrow that has DRM uses that file extention and needs ADE to interpret and download the actual book.

Correction: not every book that you download using ADE & the .acsm extention has DRM but every ebook that does have DRM uses this method.

Copying the activation.xml file back to the Kobo after a reset saves me running out of activations and having to call Adobe to beg for more.
Interesting way around that. Simple and it works, will have to remember that. Not sure if I will need it since I remove the DRM right after ADE downloads the book but good to know.
