Make a column to show DRM?

Hi all,

I hope this is the right place. I'm trying to create a custom column to show which of my books have DRM and which don't. I know I should have kept track when and where I purchased them but I didn't, so now I have a lot of books and no idea which have DRM and which don't.

Thanks so much in advance

There is no easy way to tell which have DRM. You can try viewing the each book in calibre's viewer, if the book can't open because of drm it will tell you.

You might be able to get a list of the entries, by searching the individual *.epub files in the library for contains 'rights.xml', DRM'd files have that file in it's package.
