    so my aunt and I share the same music taste, can I share my iTunes purchased songs with her via iTunes Playlist, then burned to CD, then her putting into her iTunes? Or will a violation go off? Since I bought them, and my name is on the "purchaser" info. Does that info transfer to CD?

    Just wondering. Please answer if you know.

    Burning to CD removes any DRM but also decreases the audio quality. If you're asking "can I share my iTunes purchased songs" in terms of its legality: no. You certainly have the ability to do so in the manner you described and no, your "info" wouldn't be attached to the CD audio files.

    Additionally, your aunt would experience yet another decrease in audio quality when importing from CD into her iTunes as MP3.

    No, a violation will not go off. Just burn the files onto a CD or flash drive and import it into your aunt's computer. As long as you don't contact the RIAA while you're doing it, there won't be a problem.

    Why does the audio quality decrease? I'm wondering honestly. When I was in High School av class, we were taught that only analog audio degraded with copying but that digital remained constant. What's the hitch here?
