found out that once you pay for a song it is yours as long as you don't share it
The song is never yours nor is the data or the format it was presented in. You have bought a license to listen to it in a close personal environment.
If that is so then why can't I download the songs that I bought off of musicmatch to my mp3 player(that freaking came with musicmatch software)or convert the format
Becuase of Digital Rights Management. " They " want you to keep your amount of copies to " just one ".
I tried to find the answer and what I came up with is that 1st, musicmatchs' songs are wav files and they are also protected in some way.
Yup , DRM.
My question is, is there any way I can convert the copywrited musicmatch downloads from wav to mp3.
There are tools that can get rid of the DRM inside a file , but DRM itself is also protected. So you're not allowed to
I am not doing anything illegal, just trying to make the songs(that I paid money for) play on my mp3 player.
Unfortunately under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act , you actuall are doing something illegal if you remove the DRM from a file.
All i can say is " Google is your friend ". Unfortunately rules prohibit me from helping you further.
