The so-called iTunes DRM is FairPlay, a digital rights management (DRM) system created by Apple. Most FairPlay-protected files are purchased from iTunes Store (M4V, M4B and M4P) and can only be played on Apple products with authorization. In March, 2009, iTunes music store has become DRM-free. However, the movies, TV shows and books bought from iTunes Store are still FairPlay-protected ones.
