i sent this as a email to the ITMS Support about a week ago...all i've received back is the automated bliss.."we'll get back to you" etc etc. & i called them...the guy & his supervisor didn't think this was possible at all... "MAIN QUESTION: Is there a way to transfer the songs that I bought through my parents account to my own account? I have recently turned 18 and now have my own credit/debit cards. In the last year, i have purchased approximately 180 songs from the iTunes Music Store using my parent's account and credit card (through the allowance & gift card process). However, I am going off to college and i would like to have my own Apple/itunes account. I understand how the authorize/deauthorize process works: Once i deauthorize my parent's account on my computer and reauthorize it with my own account, all the music that I bought through my parents account would be unable to play. I do not wish to burn about 18 cds and reimport the files, as this would be greatly time consuming. I understand that if this process were simple, there would be no point to the Fairplay DRM, however in the near future, I would think this will come up frequently as teenagers who use their parents accounts with gift cards and allowances would one day start using their own apple/itunes accounts." What do you guys think? I think its a interesting topic...i don't think its been brought up before. I know all about the program Hymn, but i don't want to risk Apple making those songs not work with every new iTunes version. I know they did that shortly after Hymn came out...did they stop doing it? I couldn't find anything here on this topic...sorry if I missed it... Anyway, I like to do this as legally as possible.
