    From 2007 - Lawsuit because DRM forces you to use Apple devices for music. [Or makes it REALLY awkward to play it anywhere else.]


    Apple uses FairPlay DRM [Which they developed] which works like this:


    Quote Originally Posted by Sir Wiki of Pedia
    FairPlay-protected files are regular MP4 container files with an encrypted AAC audio stream. The audio stream is encrypted using the AES algorithm in combination with MD5 hashes. The master key required to decrypt the encrypted audio stream is also stored in encrypted form in the MP4 container file. The key required to decrypt the master key is called the "user key".

    Each time a new customer uses iTunes to buy a track, a new random user key is generated and used to encrypt the master key. The random user key is stored, together with the account information, on Apple’s servers, and also sent to iTunes. iTunes stores these keys in its own encrypted key repository. Using this key repository, iTunes is able to retrieve the user key required to decrypt the master key. Using the master key, iTunes is able to decrypt the AAC audio stream and play it.

    When a user authorizes a new computer, iTunes sends a unique machine identifier to Apple’s servers. In return it receives all the user keys that are stored with the account information. This ensures that Apple is able to limit the number of computers that are authorized and makes sure that each authorized computer has all the user keys that are needed to play the tracks that it bought.

    When a user deauthorizes a computer, iTunes will instruct Apple’s servers to remove the unique machine identifier from their database, and at the same time it will remove all the user keys from its encrypted key repository.

    The iPod also has its own encrypted key repository. Every time a FairPlay-protected track is copied onto the iPod, iTunes will copy the user key from its own key repository to the key repository on the iPod. This makes sure that the iPod has everything it needs to play the encrypted AAC audio stream.

    FairPlay does not affect the ability of the file itself to be copied. It only manages the decryption of the audio content.

    Also : "Fairplay prevents iTunes customers from using the purchased music directly on any portable digital music player other than the Apple iPod, Motorola ROKR E1, Motorola SLVR, Motorola RAZR V3i, the iPhone and the iPad."

    Have some more source. This is more recent... it's from 22 hours ago.

    This is a corker of a topic.

    I havent been to the cinema in nearly 2 years, last time I did I not only sat through a trail of the film I was actually about to watch.....I had to endure Jaime (who??) Winstone banging on about how piracy keeps the Taliban in box-fresh Adidas and that everytime I rip a CD an OAP breaks a hip.

    Thought it was comical after splashing nearly a tenner on an otherwise guff film.

    +1 for Pirates (The 'Pop-Up' variety, of course I don't condone illegal downloads at all, I merely have an excess of small plastic cutlasses)

    Sorry, with the current stance on knife crime I'm afraid I can't supply without ID.

    I've seen a few dvd's and Blu rays that instead of the usual "You wouldn't steal a car" rubbish have a nice little jingle and thank you for purchasing this dvd.

    Gives you a warm fuzzy feeling rather than the pissed off feeling the normal anti piracy messages give you. :-)

    It's not the FBI warnings that I object to so much (although they are a bit annoying) it's paying for a DVD and then getting crap loads of adverts that are also un-skippable. Anyone with kids will know who the main culprits are but it's becoming more prevalent - and I'm not talking rentals here but fully purchased retail DVDs / Blue rays. I can understand it in the cinema and I can sort of tolerate it on rentals but I don't want it on my own copies!. I've just given you a load of money - don't ruin the film experience.

    Grrrrr!!

    The only way to stop movie piracy is to do what iTunes did for MP3s; offer a cheap, easy, instant and reliable download service.

    And an ISP that doesn't throttle you 3/4 of the way through the download!

    So you're saying that there's no music piracy going on?

    I thought you were on Virgin? They (are supposed to) only throttle P2P and Newsgroup downloads.
