    My girlfriend buys songs fairly often from ITunes and some of them I would like to access from my T650.

    I thought Ive read (Ive searched and cant find it) that there is software out there that will strip off the encoding so that its just a clean MP3?

    Is that correct? Who makes it?

    Thanks!

    Try researching this:

    HOWEVER, do note that what you are proposing is NOT fair use and is illegal.

    Another, perhaps more cumbersome, approach is to simply burn a music CD with iTunes, and then use another app to rip the CD to mp3.

    on a more serious note, another solution might be ... stop downloading content that has copy protection built in, especially if you paid for it, and STILL cant listen to it, lol

    I don't think so.

    Burning a music CD is built-in function of iTunes. It's legal and within the scope of the license you agree to when you buy a song.

    And despite what RIAA claims, ripping a CD for personal use is also legal. Note that law is defined by Congress and the Courts, not by the RIAA. It will remain legal until Congress or the Courts say otherwise.

    Seriously.

    Not to mention the law says that you can backup anything you download for safe keeping.

    Blaze, quit trying to hijack this post like you do with 90% of all your other posts. Your comments arent on topic at all. I didnt ask if it was legal or not I asked how to.

    FWIW I CAN listen to them via ITunes on my PC but I want to be able to listen to them in my T650. We paid for them I should be able to listen to them however we want.

    With iTunes, backing up would be a good idea anyways. Hope that you never lose your songs. You can't re-download, unless you do some serious sucking up.

    Like sam says, if you don't have a lot to copy, just burn them to red book audio format, and then extract it off the CD.

    And one more comment about ITunes, Lets say I DO want to listen to them on my PC, well the only way that I can is thru the ITunes player which I HATE. I want to be able to play them in whatever player I want.

    winamp etc.

    This is the digital millenium copywright act.

    It is what we call a law.

    It says that it is illegal to circumvent copy protection, and even illegal to show or tell others how to circumvent copy protection.

    The question was ...

    I thought Ive read (Ive searched and cant find it) that there is software out there that will strip off the encoding so that its just a clean MP3?

    Is that correct? Who makes it?
    so ... to summarize .. the question was, "how do i strip off this stupid copy protection?"

    literally, lol

    It's called fair use, there is no provision for it in DMCA. In other words, duplicating "anything you download", "for safe keeping", is a violation of the DMCA, this is also what we call illegal.

    Agreed, the law is of course retarted.

    That was the crux of the case against those who distributed DeCSS, and it was a failure. Those stripping copy protection of DVDs to play on Linux claimed this constituted "fair use", they failed. It's illegal.

    On a more technical note, if you convert your mp3's to wav for burning to CD, you will loose quality, when you rip the cd back to mp3 you will loose quality again. Not sure if this matters.

    Again, a good way to avoid this is stop supporting mp3s that dont allow you to listen to them where and when you want.

    Not totally accurate. A .wav is lossless. You won't lose quality going from lossy to lossless. So that part will be fine. Now the original downloaded iTunes file is compressed and degraded to begin with, but converting to wav won't harm it further. But you're correct in that you'll lose quality when you convert back to mp3.

    I would agree with that. I've never bought any song for download, partially because of DRM's and also I refuse to pay for a song that's of lower quality.

    The copy protection is "stripped" when a CD is burned. Burning a CD is permitted under the license you, Apple, and the record companies agree to with the sale of a song on iTunes. DMCA does not change that.

    Burning a CD is legal. Ripping a CD is legal.
