    Hello i made my first purchase in itunes store. I purchased the Following song: Shakira Waka Waka Single. Then i copied it to my bootcam partition and it can play on windows media player and ituens without having to authorize the computer. Shouldn't it be blocked? im confused.

    Apple did away with DRM. So, the file can now play on any AAC compatible player now.

    Not since they switched to the iTunes plus format. That doesn't have any DRM on it, which is the stuff that makes older iTunes stuff a pain.

    Yup they had to keep up with the Zune Marketplace and Amazon who both got rid of it earlier.
