Is there a way, through calibre, to quickly find out which books are DRM'ed?

As the title says. I found this guide to to do it in iTunes:

Can something similar be done in calibre?

Thx all and have a nice weekend!!

Yes, simply try to open the book with the Calibre viewer. If it's drm'd it will say so.

cheers

thx for reply,

will it say it in a pop up window or under info/metadata?
I have opened some books but don't know where to look? Or maybe they are just not drm'ed?

If you can read the book, it is not DRM infested.

You will get a pop up window in the viewer instead of your book.

I created a tag called "Purchased" that I apply to all my paid and DRM'd books. You could do something similar so you could then use the tag filter properties.
