How to Remove DRM from Kobo Books

Kobo books are protected by standard ADE DRM. As a result, when you buy an eBook online from Kobo Store, what you get is a DRM-protected EPUB book. In other words, you don’t exactly own the book, what you paid for is just something similar to a license to get access to read that book.

Generally, Kobo books can only be read on an e-Reader that supports Adobe Digital Editions. If you’d like to read them on Kindle or any other non-ADE supported devices, it’s a must to remove the DRM from your Kobo books and sometimes you’ll need to convert your Kobo books to other formats as well.
