convert itunes music to mp3

iTunes Music Store is the online music service run by Apple Inc. It debuted on April 28, 2003, selling online music, most of which are downloaded to be played on Apple's iPod media player.

Downloaded songs come with song information (name, artist, and album) and album artwork. These music files are managed and played on iTunes. If you convert iTunes music to mp3, ID3 tags are optional to be transferred to the mp3 files.

Music files downloaded from the store must be purchased and get authorized with restrictions on their use, enforced by FairPlay, Apple's version of digital rights management.

Under this DRM terms,

-- Users can make no more than seven CD copies of any particular playlist containing songs purchased from the iTunes Store.

-- Users can access their purchased songs on no more than five computers.

Apple signed deals with the five major record labels, namely, EMI, Universal, Warner Bros., Sony Music Entertainment, and BMG (the latter two would later merge to form Sony BMG) to sell their contents.

As of July 2007, the store has sold 3 billion songs, accounting for more than 80% of worldwide online digital music sales. Commonly, m4p is for the DRM protected content in iTunes Store, while m4a is for the DRM-free, unprotected content.

As the first and fastest conversion application of virtual burning, NoteBurner is now being used and applauded world-widely for converting iTunes m4p music to mp3, wma and wav.

NoteBurner has also the excellent capability of converting m4a and m4b songs to mp3, wma and wav.

And NoteCable can convert both m4p and m4a iTunes songs to mp3, wma and wav. Since m4p or m4b files contain text information, like album info, NoteCable can transmit this information to the converted file. Album information will be reserved and ID3 tags will all be transmitted to mp3 files.

On May 2007 tracks on the EMI label have been made available in a DRM-less format called iTunes Plus.

On October 2007, Apple announced the plan of lowering the price of music sold without copyright protection to 99 cents a song in the future.
