FairTunes is a new application that strips the digital rights management (DRM) protection from songs purchased at the iTunes Music Store. FairTunes is freeware. The FairTunes website reads, “FairTunes puts your music back into your hands. Now you can play your iTunes music when you want to, and where you want to.”
– Convert any authorized protected iTunes song into an unprotected, uncompressed file.
– Supports AIFF, Wave, QuickTime, System 7 Sound, MuLaw, and AVI file creation.
– Easy to use – no complicated setup needed.
– Built for Mac OS X.
According to MacNN, “Unlike PlayFair, a similar utility that Apple has twice had removed from the Web, FairTunes does not require an iPod and is packaged as a simple Cocoa application that converts the song into an uncompressed WAV of AIFF file, which can then be encoded or burned as the user desires.” Full article here.
