    I've Googled for apps to do this but all of the ones I've found are out of date. I realize there isn't much of a need for this anymore but I've just discovered about 20 tracks in my library are still protected. This means I can't use them in iMovie for the iPhone. Only about half of them are listed in iTunes as having iTunes Plus upgrades so I'm trying to figure out what to do with the rest.

    What's the easiest way to do this nowadays?

    Burn a CD. Then rip them off the CD when it's done.

    This. I've tried a lot of DRM removal programs, but none of them work. It'd be even wiser to use a rewritable CD so that you can use the CD again after this one-time use, if available. I'd recommend using the lossless encoder for burning and ripping to ensure the sound files retain the highest quality.
