How to remove DRM from booklive.jp ebooks

Hey everyone,

I'm a complete newbie to ebooks, so please forgive me. I recently purchased an ebook on booklive.jp and I've tried to remove the DRM from it using Calibre. However, it doesn't seem to be working. Does anyone know if it is indeed possible to do this? I don't want to purchase any other books from them unless I can remove the DRM.

Thanks in advance for any help or advice.
Cheers!

I'd go to Apprentice Alf's blog and ask there. You won't get an answer here.

Interesting… not only am I not alone, seems I'm late to the party too. Is there any information here about Calibre being able to read encrypted books. It seems to me that all booklive books are encrypted epub formats. That are only readable by their native reader app, which of course is garbage like most others.
Guess the search continues!

Hi. Welcome to Mobileread.

[EDITED]

Unfortunately - as pointed out by the Moderator above - it can't, so I've deleted that erroneous information I posted a few minutes ago.

However, rather than simply deleting my post, I would like to extend a welcome to you.

And...have fun!


Don
