Have you ever purchased music from iTunes between 2003-2009 and tried to save them to a non-Apple MP3 player, but have had no success? Because any purchased music from iTunes during that time are encoded with DRM (Digital Rights Management), which is designed to prevent unauthorized copying of purchased M4P music. Although since 2009, Apple no longer sells DRM protected music and all music now for sale is free of any playback restriction, that didn’t help much with songs purchased before that decision. If you still have these crippled M4P tracks sitting in your library and want to get them free from DRM clutches, then fret no more, as Sidify iTunes M4P to MP3 Converter for Windows (and Mac) is here to help you.
