Rip out DRM off Mobi Pocket.

I did a search and didn't find anything definitive.

I want to get this http://www.cyberread.com/The-Lightni...RICK/id101839/ but it is says it is protected. I don't want to spend the money for it if I can't use it.

It is the only one I can find (the other is the Kindle Store, and do not want to read it on my Iphone).

is there a step by step process?

This is available as an ePub in the UK, but geographic restrictions may prevent you from buying it.

To strip the MOBI DRM, use mobidedrm.py. This is probably legal in the US for personal use on ebooks you buy. Note that mobidedrm also works on Kindle AZW ebooks from your iPhone if you copy them to a PC and use the iPhone's AZW PID.

It worked for the book I bought, though I don't plan to buy from mobipocket anymore.

I'm afraid that you mustn't ask for help in removing DRM. It's against the MobileRead site policy to either ask for, or to provide, such help.

Thanks for your consideration.

sorry, didn't know. So forget that request. I just assumed since I see it talked about often.

Is it OK to ask how to get a Kindle file off of an iPhone? I'm curious about both - if it's allowed and how its done.

Well, what the policy says is:
Quote:
MobileRead does not condone or support the use of this web site to break the law. This means that we will not allow posting of instructions showing someone how to break the law, or requests for such instructions.
That was the only thing I could find that was relevant. This does not seem to cover asking for DRM-removal since removing DRM is for some people legal but it does seem to cover asking for how to buy books which you are not allowed to buy by circumventing the checks in ebook shops.

It's a tricky affair, but I think we can agree that talking about DRM-removal is fine; what Harry meant (in reply to rock's question) is that we cannot host detailed instruction - a step by step guide for instance - on how to use mobidedrm.

Step by step instructions are readily available via web search anyway. No need to post them here.
There is even a Calibre plug-in version of the tool that automatically converts DRM'ed files as they're imported to Calibre.
All that is needed is to search for the removal tool by name and scan the first few pages of results.
When it comes to the web, just knowing the stuff exists is enough.

Yew would think so, but I have been unable to find the Calibre plug-in.

And I don't even want to be naughty with it!

All you need to know is where MobiDeDRM originated.
That particular blog is still active and generating many new conversion tools that don't necessarily have anything to do with DRM but have to do with reverse engineering ebook formats like ereader and pml. Persistence and careful reading of the web search results can be very productive.

That is a much better statement. Because then people can ask and maybe receive information in a personal reply without feeling they have done something against the policy.
