Want to get rid of DRM protection when you buy movies from iTunes? You’ve come to the right place! Here I will list four decent charged or free iTunes DRM remover for Windows or Mac. These tools can help you remove DRM from your iTunes purchases or rentals so that you can keep your iTunes rentals on your computer forever, or copy your iTunes purchases including audio tracks (.m4p, .m4b)/movies (.m4v)/TV-shows (.m4v) to non-Apple multimedia devices like PSP, Xbox 360, Zune, Smart phones or tablets powered by Android/Blackberry OS/Windows mobile OS etc. freely.


QTFairUse (Freeware/Windows)


QTFairUse is a free iTunes DRM removing application that allow you to convert encrypted sound tracks (.m4p extension) purchased from iTunes into M4a files without DRM protection. The way QTFairUse works is very straightforward. Just let your iTunes to play the protected files, and it will automatically intercept the unencrypted AAC data stream when it is transferred to the computer’s sound card. During this process, it copies unencrypted data, frame-by-frame, into RAM and then inserts it into a new MP4 container that is free of any DRM.


The disadvantage is that the usage of this program is a pain. You need download the old version iTunes, because the author has not updated QTFairUse since January 15, 2008. The current QTFairUse (version 6-2.5) is only compatible with iTunes or older version.



iSkysoft DRM Removal (Shareware/Windows)

FairGame (Freeware/Mac)


FairGame, which is a free iTunes music DRM removal software for Mac, takes advantage of the iTunes Default encoder to convert songs purchased from iTunes to a unprotected format. Rather than illegally stripping out the DRM encryption directly from the iTunes songs, Fair Game re-encodes protected AAC files purchased in iTMS into unprotected AAC file using Apple's iMovie software. All tagging info (i.e. artwork, song title, lyrics, album etc.) is kept well.


What you MUST DO (only once) to get FairGame to work:
Enable "Access for assistive devices" in the "Universal Access" system preference
Select "Place clip in Movie Timeline" in the "Import" preference of iMovie HD
Then you can simply:
Choose some songs in iTunes
Press on the "Process songs" button
then don't touch anything and wait until it's done...(FairGame is scripting iMovie's interface to process the songs, don't interfere)
