Why Adobe Digital Rights Management blocks Figma PDF exports on eReaders

After uploading a PDF I had exported from Figma to my Kobo eReader, I received the message :

“Your eReader is not authorized to open this book. This book is protected by Adobe Digital Rights Management (DRM). You need to re-authorize your eReader with your Adobe ID using Adobe Digital Editions (ADE).”

Only the PDF created by Figma gives me this message so far.

It seems odd that Adobe is restricting me from viewing a file I created using Figma and requiring more software in order to open my own document. Can Figma’s PDF’s be saved in a way that prevents this lock?

This sounds like a bug that needs to be reported to Figma support team via support@figma.com or the support request form.
