I am trying to edit a project for class in Final cut pro and like and idiot thought I was going to use my itunes libary (relax, I know if I showed it in public, I would be screwed for using copywritten music), but I wanted to know if iTunes is ever going to get rid of that format, considering it seems like other services have done away with it as a marketing edge. :confused::confused::confused:

What is iTunes Plus?
iTunes Plus is the new standard on iTunes. iTunes Plus downloads are songs and music videos available in our highest quality 256 kbps AAC audio encoding (twice the audio quality of protected music purchases), and without digital rights management (DRM). iTunes Plus music can be burned to CD as many times as you need, synced to any AAC-enabled device (such as iPod, iPhone, or Apple TV), and played on any Mac or Windows computers you own.

You can also upgrade eligible songs that you've previously purchased, by clicking the "iTunes Plus" link in the right column of the iTunes home page.

I've heard rumors of iTunes+ but I've never seen anything that I was trying to buy offered that way...
If it's a paid download in iTunes, it's iTunes Plus. They removed all the tracks that weren't upgraded to Plus. They still put DRM on the weekly free downloads I think.
