My absolute refusal to buy digital music with digital locks on it makes this a problem I don’t have, but considering that iTunes did fairly well for itself during the DRM era in spite of me, some of you likely aren’t so fortunate. So because nobody should suffer with crippled music unnecessarily, here’s a step by step guide to unlocking all those old songs you bought before 2009 when you were given the control over your music collection that you should’ve had all along.
This all sounds reasonably simple, and you should do it if you need to. Biggest pain in the ass is probably going to be redownloading everything if you’ve got a big library, but it’ll be worth it in the end since you’ll actually own the stuff you’ve been renting from the RIAA for years.
