Harry Potter eBooks Not DRM-Free

June 23, 2011: SHOCK: Harry Potter eBooks DRM-FREE!

That was the hype. This is the reality, today:

Confirmed: Harry Potter eBooks Are NOT DRM-Free in Kindle Format (Or Any Other eBookstore)

I’m not buying them. I have no interest in them.

What I want to know is, if someone gives up their Kindle and switches to ePub, can they still download the ePub from Pottermore — where it is DRM-free?

As for the watermarking done on the Pottermore editions, I’d like someone to unzip the ePub and let me know how they’re doing it. I suspect something in the CSS or another exterior file.
