Kobo Desktop Content Locked?

This is a new one for me. I rarely use the desktop app but wanted to check something in a new purchase. I updated the desktop app (running OS X 10.10.1) as prompted. Everything went smoothly. I tried to open the book and I got the message "Content Locked."

I tried a few more books, there doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason. A free book I got yesterday opens, a purchased / DRM protected book doesn't. DRM protected books purchased within the last 10 days open, as well as non-DRM'ed books.

The download buttons are available on my Kobo.com library page for these books but I haven't tried to download yet.

Any thoughts?

Try a logout from the Kobo Desktop and then relogin. Yes it will make Desktop redownload all books.

Solved!

After this multiplying shelf madness I was working up to quite a fit.
