protected iTunes files?

I have a question. Is it possible to somehow make songs purchased through iTunes on one computer work on another computer? I went and bought a lot of music that I couldn't find in record stores through iTunes. However, I would like to have the songs on my desktop as well, not just my laptop. I have a feeling these protected AAC files won't like that...

My only other option is to play the songs and simultaneously record them to MP3s with my audio software, but that could be...tedious.

Yes, you can. As far as I know, you can share them with up to 5 computers in total. When you authorize another comp to use one of these files it will tell you that you have 4 left, and so on.

Yeah you can authorize your desktop, it's in the Advanced menu in the program. If you have a burner on your laptop you could burn a playlist to an audio CD w/ iTunes, that gets rid of the DRM.

Or what typhoon said...
