Norwegian hacker “DVD Jon” best known for his software that can bypasses copying restrictions on DVDs has developed a new program that can rid of digital rights management restrictions on iTunes. W00t to the Mac peeps out there!
Anyway, the software known as DoubleTwist (released by a company in Sa Francisco), can actually allow users to convert DRM-protected tracks into MP3 files which can then be played on any portable device besides the iPod. Obvious target – songs sold at Apple’s iTunes. Not only that, DoubleTwist also allows people to transfer photos from Facebook pages to cell phones.
Of course, the question still remains, “Is it legal?”
