“When the iTunes Store first opened it was pretty simple to understand the rules of ‘Authorization,'” Terry White reports for MacNews.
“However, now with the App Store, Mac App Store, iTunes Match, Apple TV, etc. it can be really confusing,” White reports. “There are also different rules depending on the type of content in question. For example, if I bought a song back in the day when Apple used Digital Rights Management (DRM) aka ‘Protected,’ then I was limited to only being able to play that song on up to 5 Authorized computers and an unlimited number of iPods. Luckily Apple no longer sells DRM’d tunes, so this problem/limit goes away for any new purchases of ‘music.'”
White reports, “However, other content, such as movies is still DRM protected and therefore still has the same rules enforced.”
