Epub and DRM ?

Sound like the Cybook is going to support Epub sometime soon

And that lead to ->
Any way to get rid of the DRM's ?
Or a website that sells no-drmised Epub ?

Pan-Macmillan sells DRM-free ePub.

Providing information about DRM-removal is inappropriate for this site.

The EInk devices that support DRMed MOBI and (increasingly) DRMed Adobe ePub all run Linux, but MobiPocket and Adobe have not released Linux Desktop versions.

In 2007, Adobe said in its FAQ:
Quote:
Will a Linux® version of Digital Editions be available?
Yes, a desktop Linux is under development and a public beta is expected later this year.
It is now 2009, and the FAQ no longer mentions Linux.

I think DRM peddlers are making a mistake by not supporting all available platforms. This requires resources, but stripping DRM becomes much more widespread when DRM-supporting Readers are unavailable.

It is now possible to strip DRM from all popular ebook formats. Adobe's DRM scheme is called ADEPT so see: Adobe ADEPT DRM for EPUB circumvented and Adobe ADEPT DRM for PDF circumvented.

Yeah. it's lucky there are people there to do these scripts
But you shouldn't have to do this to read something you paid for. If at least DRM where useful in preventing piracy, but they are not. Quite the contrary actually, they are encouraging it by making the customers life a pain.

I was reading on note from BooksOnBoard about drm''s. and that part made me jump :
Quote:
Downloads are limited to three before you must write into BooksOnBoard support and request your title be re-activated.
Uuu what ???? 3 times ?
Is that a BooksOnBoard restrictions, or an Epub drm restiction ? Drm on epub looks even worse than the one on mobi.

At first I thought you must be mistaken, but there it is in Adobe Download Reactivations. BoB's point is that Adobe is charging extra for every download, and, unlike with MOBI, there is no need to redownload existing ebooks when you add a new device to your Adobe ID.
Quote:
You will be able to open these saved eBook files on all your named activation devices without requiring a reset of the download link. AND, should a distributor pull the title from distribution it will remain available to you.
You can have 6 devices on your Adobe ID and this is handled entirely by Adobe and is independent of the bookstores used and your ebooks. Download each ebook once and make a backup. If you loose the backup, BoB has a copy but consider this your 2nd backup.
