To open a DRM'd book I have to type in my name incorrectly, and my credit card number. It opens.
Trying to get B&N to correct my name in their servers has been a nightmare, from which I have to waken.
The problem is their computers but they claim to not be able to fix it.
Huh?
Another prime example of why DRM should be abolished.
The name that is used to encrypt the books is the name you have registered in your B&N account. If you change the name in your B&N account, and than dowload your books again, the books will be encrypted with the new name.

The Sony e-readers do not support the B&N DRM, so you will not be able to read the books on your Sony e-reader (without removing the DRM).
