    I know this feature can let you send files but I have't found what kind of files. If you could send mp3s that would be pretty sweet. I imagine there's some kind of copyright laws that will likely prevent it.

    Anyone know?

    AirDrop is implemented in specific apps, and exposes specific files/types. It's not a option in Music, and since audio files are silo'ed, no other app can AirDrop them either (on the latter point, I'm also assuming AirDrop is exposed in the public API in V5 SDK/XCode).

    It's not a technical limitation, but a policy decision, and I think the OP is right on with the concern over copyright. I'd image other players like Amazon wouldn't allow this either.
