    I doubt you'll find a legal solution. While iTunes is offering more DRM-free music along with a lot of other players out there, the fact is DRM is DRM for a reason - a DRM song is locked for a reason. When you buy DRM music, you're agreeing to that.

    That said, there used to be a program that would crack the iTunes DRM, but I see now they've taken it down. Methinks it was for Windows anyway...

    you can burn it to an audio cd and then rerip the songs to wharever format

    keep in mind you will lose some quality as you are encoding from the original song if you know what i mean

    however, this is the method i use

    DRM, for all it's evil and manipulative heart, is a legal device attempting to protect the rights of the musician (and by corollary the evil, manipulative record company...) and as such is a force for good, light and the future of mankind.... (ahem)

    Anyhoo, no piracy talk please.
