    Hi :)
    I’m wondering why it’s allowed to export songs purchased from iTunes as mp3s to play on other devices?
    Why would Apple would not only allow, but facilitate that in iTunes with no other software needed.
    It’s nice to be able to play the music on other devices, but also makes it possible to distribute the files,
    which isn’t much like Apple.
    Cheers, Art.

    DRM was never Apple's idea, it was a provision of the arrangement with the record labels. Apple stopped adding DRM to music purchased through iTunes in January of 2009. anything acquired since them is just a file (though it may be tagged in some way). If you don't agree with that you can choose to not copy and propagate them, for a more "Apple" experience.
