Yeah I have to agree, they make numerous factual errors in their reporting. Though that does not rule out their example of confusion. Anyone could make the mistake that somehow adobe produced ePub when in reality they have only adopted it. Especially the the prevalence of their content server associated with ePub use.
Frankly I don't think it matters at all. ePub + DRM != ePub. DRM poisons an "open" "standard" making it neither. So all the excitement over ePub adoption by companies wrapping it up in DRM is misplaced... severely.
