Hymn is Back with QTFairUse in an Ongoing Tit-for-Tat with Apple Over iTunes DRM

Categories: DRM Arms RaceDRM Circumvention

In the last few weeks both iTunes Fairplay DRM and Microsoft's PlayForSure DRM have been under a tit-for-tat attack by QTFairUse6 and FairUse4WM respectively. Within hours of Apple's updated iTunes 7.0 to counter an earlier version of QTFaireUse6, a new version 2.3 was released to counter the update. QTFAirUse6 strips songs purchased through iTunes 7 of their DRM permitting honest Apple music purchasers to play their music on any device of their choosing.
