A lot of people are reading how the news is reporting this (I.E. a news report I saw had the headline “iTunes DRM Cracked!”) and thinking that somehow any iTunes file can be cracked by anyone. That is not the case. There are several LEGITIMATE uses for this software. One is, like I said, to use portables that don’t support protected AAC files. (Um, anything OTHER than an iPod at this point!!) The other is to play these files on non-supported operating systems like Linux. I love iTunes and would not want to see it get TRULY hacked where all of its music is available to anyone, but, these issues I just raised ARE legitimate. I realize that once you unprotect your music you can then do whatever you want with it, but, hopefully if you’re paying for your music you won’t then turn around and unprotect it and throw it on a P2P network. But, to those that argue that this will allow widespread piracy of iTunes music, um, what’s to stop someone from burning them to a CD and reripping them? Yea, ok, the quality drops slightly, but, there’s nothing stopping people from doing that and then shoving them up on a P2P network. This program doesn’t enable anything NEW, it just makes it EASIER for those that want to actually USE the music they bought legitimately. I’m no lawyer and this is all just my opinion. But to me this is an issue of fair use.
