Guide to Stripping DRM from eBook Formats for Personal Use
Tired of eReader-dependent DRM-ed eBook formats? Ebook Formats, DRM and You — A Guide for the Perplexed identifies the tools and steps to execute to strip out DRM using Calibre. Not hard to do.
Mac OS X 10.5 and 10.6 users who don’t want to use Calibre can use the DeDRM AppleScript, see DeDRM AppleScript for Mac OS X 10.5, 10.6. Windows users who don’t want to use Calibre will need to install Python and PyCrypto and use either the DeDRM_WinApp tool or stand-alone tools. See Windows, Python, Ebooks and DRM.
