I'm with Harry.
If you were never able to download files then all you were buying were "online viewing rights". Akin to a subscription to a paywalled magazine site, say THE ECONOMIST or the WSJ.
Or a Netflix subscription.

And, even if it were a DRM issue, it would be a case of DRM used *poorly*.
DRM is just a technology toolkit that can be used wisely (as in, faciliating library ebook checkouts) or unwisely (the Sony Librie expiring ebook "sales"). Don't blame the tech for what unscrupuous operators use it for.
That's like blaming torrent tech for piracy.
