    InformIT didn't inform me I was buying an encrypted ebook file.

      I'm a bit annoyed today because I have previously purchased a book by the same author from this company and it was non-DRM. Today I go and buy his new book and I find after the purchase that it's a DRM file that requires Adobe Digital Editions and won't allow me to view the book on ipod touch or iphone.

       

      All very well if you inform the customer what they are getting before they purchase but InformIT showed the book as a PDF icon and their page never showed the book as being a DRM book.

       

      Interestingly enough

       

      http://www.informit.com/store/product.aspx?isbn=0137054149

       

      if you look at View Source on this page you see all kinds of stuff about it being DRM and requiring Adobe Digital Editions but no where was that shown

      in the browser.

       

      Very frustrating and I will never purchase a DRM PDF ever again.
