No, it's not hypocritical. If a publisher wants to have some kind of drm he can't do otherwise. Outside Amazon, he can't sell a mobi book with drm, even if he would like so.
(You can of course argue that he could sell the epub with watermark too...)
That's what I meant. Why laden the ePub with DRM so it has locks and no keys where the Mobi is without locks.

Chi pointed me to empik and nexto (both .pl) and both are offering epubs watermarked

So who wants to learn a wee bit complex but beautiful new language?

We'll see... Until the guys meet the 1st polish girls - reading will then no longer matter.

nexto also allows to send directly to kindle. I just pray it stays this way, so convenient, no drm, 3 formats available, no hassle...

... except those embedded heavy fonts, to go back to topic.

Those books are sadly not in English. But here is a screenshot I took of my online library with 3 types available to download plus where I underlined "watermark" for mobi (epub is DRMed from what I saw)

the site is empik.com. They do have international catalogue in English and German but I think only on paper.
Thanks - that's very interesting!

When I had a Nook STR I bought a copy of Wire In the Blood by Val McDermid from B&N. It was stuck with this font that was so light, you couldn't read the book. I even spent an hour in the store with the Nook people trying to make it legible.

I finally ended up pirating a copy just so I could change the font into something legible.

Thank you for that. I totally forgot the "it's an inappropriate font for eInk" reason.

I had font problems with the Dresden ebooks. They came with a perfect font for print but one almost unreadable on eink. Highly annoying.
