If, as Toddos said, it is really that easy to crack ADE DRM, then it seems pointless for the publishers to keep insisting upon including it. It seems to me that this will only encourage piracy rather than prevent it.
DRM can be stripped in the time it takes to load an eBook into Calibre. It doesn't get any easier then that.

Yep. I self-published a small book through Kindle Direct Publishing and chose to DRM it. Didn't see the point. Plus all that stuff fjtorres said.

The "latest" jetBook Lite firmware:

It included Adobe Reader Mobile version 9.1.1 and it is Adobe making this
very good reader software widely/freely available that may account for the
popularity of ADE, as an epub DRM standard. This is much the same approach that made PDF a standard.

Luck;

In the time it takes to load your eBook into Calibre, the DRM is gone. Bad idea to have included DRM. The people who would put your eBook up on the net for others to get for free have no problem stripping the DRM. All you are doing is penalizing your honest customers who do not know how to strip the DRM.

I think he meant to say he did not put DRM on it.
