    Everywhere I search, the only topics I find address splitting an iTunes library on a single machine. What I'm looking to do is disassociate myself from the people sharing my iTunes account.

    There are four people and myself making purchases on my account. I want to keep my purchases, and move the other party's purchases to a wholly new account.

    Well, what are my options?

    You can't move an other people's purchases onto your account per se, but you can get them to authorize their account onto your itunes (or vice-versa), thereby allowing them or you access to the purchases and being allow to sync them onto devices. However, you can't update those apps again until those people or you sign in again (phone or itunes) and do the update all button.

    Thanks, that offers some insight but it's still unclear.

    Let me reassert that I am splitting one account to two accounts. I want to keep my personal purchases and I want the other party to have their purchases moved to their new account.
