Remove DRM from iTunes
DRM on songs is restrictive and obnoxious, you paid for the music therefore it belongs to you. Unfortunately record companies don’t always agree with us, so when you buy something like a song from iTunes it’ll often come with DRM protection preventing you from doing what you want to do with it.
Remove DRM from songs using iTunes
Ironically, you can use iTunes itself to remove DRM from the songs you just paid for on iTunes with DRM forced on you. This is the easiest way to do it:
* Create a playlist within iTunes that includes all the songs with DRM
* Using a blank CD-R disk, Burn the DRM songs to this CD with iTunes
* Once the CD is burnt, re-rip the entire CD with iTunes
* Your newly imported songs will be DRM free! To avoid confusion you may want to delete the originals with DRM protection.
This method to remove the DRM protection works on Mac OS X and Windows, so regardless of where your iTunes music is stored you’ll be able to remove the restriction.
