DRM sucks. Again.

Recently I got two books from All Romance ebooks, both from the same publisher, in Mobipocket format. I now always get that format because it works so well with the e-reader. But both books turned out to be DRM protected. I had to complain with the shop and was told that the publisher uploaded the wrong file. What gives? I wasn’t aware that any of the publishers that I bought books from sold DRM protected files in the first place. Both books also were from the same author. I don’t understand that at all. It’s a right pain to want the book – I’m sure you know about the instant gratification thing – and then it turns out the book is DRM protected. I can’t load it into the reader and now havt to wait until I get an unprotected file.

Am I the only one this has happened to? Does it only happen with Mobipocket? Does it only happen with that one publisher, author, shop? I’m pissed off.
