    Simply copy the files and authorise the new machine. Job done

    How does the new machine become "authorised"?

    In iTunes, under the Store menu, select Authorize computer. If you are giving away or selling the old computer, you'll want to Deauthorize that computer as well.

    You do it in iTunes. If you are getting rid of the old machine then de-authorise it in iTunes as you are only allowed 5 machines.

    When you first try to play one of the files iTunes will ask you to enter you account details to authorise the machine.
