DVD Jon Breaks ITunes Security--Again

Described by its developers as "the fair interface to the ITunes Music Store," PyMusique is a new application that lets users connect to Apple Computer's ITunes Music Store and download songs without Digital Rights Management (DRM) restrictions.

PyMusique lets you preview songs, register for an ITunes Music Store account, buy songs, and re-download them after purchasing--a feature that ITunes does not support. But most notably, songs purchased and downloaded using PyMusique are not encrypted with FairPlay, the DRM technology used for all songs downloaded from the ITunes Music Store using ITunes itself.
