Using Apple's iMovie to strip FairPlay DRM from iTunes songs

Posted on Wednesday, August 04 2004 @ 23:25:52 CEST by


According to Macnews.de users can use Apple's iMovie to remove the FairPlay digital rights management protection on their iTunes songs.
The site reports that Apple's own video tool can be used to create unprotected song files that be played on any computer without recompression, circumventing iTunes' DRM protection. iMovie users can use the "Share" feature of iMovie to export any imported (protected) song from the iTunes Music Store. The exported songs can either be stored in the un-protected AAC file format (used by Apple at the iTMS) or in the raw WAV file format; both of these formats are supported by iTunes.

Earlier this year, Apple used the DMCA to try to shutdown "Hymn," an open-source projected designed to convert iTunes songs into an unprotected format. The report notes that users can also bypass the iTunes song protections by burning a CD and then re-ripping the songs, although some loss of quality is expected during the recompression.
