    I don't seem to be getting a proper response anywhere else, so I'll make a thread of it.

    Do the new Digital Rights Management rules apply to music you rip on your own computer, or do they only apply to the music purchased at the store? I am refering to the limit to 3 computers, and changing the playlists every 10 burns etc...

    Good question. I would imagine that the implementation for the AAC would all be the same. But there probably wouldn't be for MP3.

    if i am understanding correctly, its not really going to matter to the average user. the default ripping codec is still going to be mp3. if you want to rip to MP4 AAC, you need a quicktime pro license.

    Are you sure that you will need Quicktime pro to rip aac? That doesn't sound right at all. Also, I'm refering to the DRM. I want to know if the music you burn your self will have DRM in it.

    I'm pretty sure this is not the case.

    you just need to update to quicktime 6.2 to be able to rip mp3s in AAC

    I don't want to know anything about ripping into AAC. I am trying to find out if music you burn yourself will have the resrtictions the music you buy from them will have. This has nothing to do with AAc, or MP3. This has to do with the Digital rights Management built into iTunes4.

    Well the thing is if you're burning it to standard CDA format - CDA does not support any kind of DRM whatsoever. So unless they've somehow broken the CD standard in the discs it burns (which would suck ass) they should be fine. Although i've heard the CDs you burn have terrible quality if you re-rip them.

    I think what he means is that if he rips music into itunes from a cd using the aac encoder, will DRM be implemented into to it. But as arn says, i dont think this will be the case, and i agree with him. Besides, i dont think apple are that bad. Cos legally there could be a hitch. Lets just say for instance you had song you wrote yourself on a cd, they all belong to you completely, so if you wanted to encode them into aac what right would apple have implement DRM on your music...... Thats just my thoughts on it. (i dont like the saying "2c")
