    yep, its true, apple opened the door. itunesdl lets you snag anyones files. i know this isnt what apple intended but its still mainly there fault. they just gotta hope it doesnt come back around and bite them in the ass.

    iTunes allows streaming, right? So it's not actually saving teh music to the client computer. But isn't there some program floating around that actually allows downloading as well? itunesdb.com shut itself down on this basis, at least from the site's notes.

    It doesn't really matter, because you still can't listen to the files from the music store anyway. If you download a song that is not on an authorized computer, then it will not play.

    very true, although once this hits the windows world its only a matter of time. i played with a friends bougt song to see if i could ease my way around it. to my knowledge apple did a very good job, i couldnt do it and i tried many things.
