The UK Bookseller WH Smith has been experiencing some kind of bug in its ebook store, whereby it adds DRM to all of the Kobo ebooks it sells, even the ones that are supposed to be DRM-free (like mine).

Kobo/WH Smith have come up with a solution that enables your
e-books to still be on sale. The DRM wording has been manually

the e-books are DRM-free until WH Smiths is able to update their
website which will be at the end of April.
