adding metadata

Is there a way to add meta data to drm books? I would like to add a summary (like what is on the back jacket) to the books I buy from the sony store so I have an idea what they are about. I think I have a latest version of Calibre and this works great with the free books I have downloaded. I am not trying to convert the sony books but it seems like I can't add the meta data unless I click convert which of course doesn't work

Normally one cannot add most metadata fields to DRM protected books as this information is inside the part encrypted by the DRM.

Well, that is not true for MobiPocket books and I thought it did not hold for most ePub books either.

I think is true for Sony books though (assuming their DRM'ed format)
