Secure Mobipocket Decoder

When the Mobipocket server died last month it obviously caused a few people to have second thoughts about the mobipocket format and as I noted at the time seemed to spur people onto developing ways to extract the content from mobipocket's format. Well now it is done and it is possible to purchase a mobipocket DRMed book and convert it to standard HTML.

Unfortunately the program requires a couple of Java libraries (jars) from the iLiad iRex, which are only obtainable if you can find an internet archive of them (I can't help you here), have an iRex or have a MyiRex account. They are "irex.jar" and "MobipocketCoreReader.jar".
