    Hi,
    Is there a limitation of the number of time i can download movies music on my computer once i purchased it from iTune Store.
    Could i buy a movie(or whatever) watch it and free my hd of it... until some friends or some years pass by and i download it again?
    or do i have a certain amount of times(1?) i can download the stuff and i have to keep it on my computer forever and hope the hard drive doesn't break down.

    You can DL it again up to 5 times. Read real close about Authorizing. If you have more then one box or laptop. Just be sure if you sell a machine to deauthorize it first.

    Authorization has nothing to do with downloads. You are only entitled to one download from iTunes.

    "When you buy a song or album from the iTunes Store, you are entitled to download it only once."

    "When you buy a song, video, game, or album from the iTunes Store, you are entitled to download it a single time. If you want to download it again, you must purchase it again. You can copy downloaded content between authorized computers."

    Just move a copy up to 5 machines. You then can replace any lost DL.

    Or just burn a Backup to disk.

    He can make as many copies on as many different machines as he wants.

    You can only authorize 5 of them for playing the files though.
