They have DRM if that is what you mean.

They have Adobe DRM, see Apprentice Alf's Blog for a good summary of your options for stripping DRM.

The only problem you may have is actually buying the books; most UK bookstores will only sell to people in the UK.

WHSmith does not check IP address locations, but it may check the credit card. I buy from them with an EntroPay Card (5% fee) and a UK address.

Thanks for your replies, I did found out later, they only sell in the UK. There goes my hope away to get an ebook for "The great Hunt" from Robert Jordan. It is the only ebook from this series not avaible for Europe.

That's right... I have bought books from then in the past, not available to me anywhere else... but some time ago, I got an email saying, they now only could sell books to people in the UK..

It is also sold by several other stores , maybe you could buy from one of those? Kobo should work.

I have just learnt a hard lesson from WH Smith. I circumvented the geographic restrictions, then forgot to topup my debit card - so it got declined. I am now worried that the obvious error in my address will be picked up by them and they will close my ebook account. Hopefully their recheck on my debit card in a few days time will be automatic - otherwise I've cooked my goose......

Note to self - remember to top up debit card before trying to buy ebooks
