    I just bought my first song through the Online store from my Touch and when dock it to my Mac, I don't see it in iTunes. Is it also possible to transfer the song from the Touch to the Mac?

    As long as your Mac is authorized to play the song it should have downloaded it from the iPod to your computer.

    If not automatically syncing, go to File->Transfer Purchases from iPod

    Even if he did, he would need authorization from you to play it on his computer. And you only have five of those.

    Can you tell I'm not a regular iTunes customer? Too bad iPod/iTunes doesn't have a Zune like policy regarding sharing songs. Oh well.

    You can't share DRM-protected files downloaded from the Zune Marketplace either (without also sharing your password). All you can do is send it from one Zune device to another for 3 plays, which is only useful if you are nearby someone else who also has a Zune.

    DRM-free tracks (from either iTunes Store or Zune Marketplace) you could share all you want, but (a) it's illegal; and (b) your account info is probably embedded, so the file could be traced back to you.
