Once you downloaded an protected AAC audio from the iTunes store, enjoyed a lot in your Mac and finally decided to play it on your Windows PC, Android Tablet, or in a Media Player, you will realize the fact that the music file is not opening in any other media devices than your Mac. It is frustrating to use such a song that can only be played on a single device. Why can’t you play this DRM protected AAC song on other devices? What’s stopping the devices from playing it?

The reason is the DRM protection of the music file that set by iTunes to prevent the copying of the song. Sometimes it set a limit to the number of computers that can play the file or completely block them. This is such a good security feature by the iTunes but not that much favorable to the users.
