Bhuvana never mentioned Adobe He/she could use whatever encrypting method and key supported by encryption.xml

What other possibilities there are for encrypting methods that doesn't require purchasing anything but still work in reading devices that support ePub?

None. Until/unless B&N finally come out with their own ePub DRM system. And even then it'll only work on B&N readers.

If you want them to work on current readers, none. Fictionwise/eReader/Barnes & Noble are rumored to be working on their own version of ePub DRM and of course anyone else can develop their own DRM for it too, but it won't work on the current crop of readers at this point.

But the greatest irony is that publishers are actually silly enough to pay Reminds me off the famous story about Kalidasa, who once tried to saw off a tree branch, while sitting on it!
C'mon, we should (perversely) cast Adobe into bronze for it. A bunch of techno-dinosaurs entrenched in the oldE publishing houses NEEDS that false sense of security, there would be way less e-books without it.

All in good time. A few years later somebody will explain to them that, no, DRM was not a bullet-proof protection that they thought is needed, but yes, they made money despite of it. Or because of it.

We all LOVE Adobe DRM now that it is broken, don't we?
