    We have five people sharing my iMac at home. Can anyone help me figure out how to copy all my itunes music to my Sons screen without downloading the music all over again? :confused:

    don't think you can do it....

    "About shared libraries You can listen to a shared song or watch a shared video, but you can't add it to your library, playlists, or iPod, or burn it to a CD."

    Do you want to SHARE the music or COPY the files to another machine? You're asking two different questions.

    iTunes will let you share your library over a home network where the other users can only listen to it, and not actually grab the files. Not a problem if the computer sharing it is always on.

    If you want to copy the files to another computer, assuming you're talking about iTunes DRM protected songs, you can authorize several (5?) other devices to play those songs. If the songs aren't DRM protected, you can copy them like any other file using file sharing.
