Official iTunes Limitations & Third-Party Software Solution

Have you ever purchased music from iTunes between 2003-2009 and tried to save them to a non-Apple MP3 player, but have had no success? Because any purchased music from iTunes during that time are encoded with copy protection, which is designed to prevent unauthorized copying of purchased M4P music. Although since 2009, Apple no longer publish this kind of music and all music now for sale is free of any playback restriction, that didn’t help much with songs purchased before that decision.
