Chapter 2. iTunes > iTunes and iTunes Music Store restrictions

iTunes and iTunes Music Store restrictions

Apple puts some limitations on how many computers can play the music that you purchased from the iTunes Music Store. To play purchased music, you must “authorize” your computer using your iTunes Music Store account name and password. When you try to play a purchased song on an unauthorized computer, a dialog box opens asking if you want to authorize it. You can authorize up to five computers at a time. You can use someone else's computer to buy music from the iTunes Music Store if you log in to your account and authorize the computer you're using, but remember to deauthorize it to prevent someone else from using your account. To deauthorize a computer, open iTunes, then from the Advanced menu choose “Deauthorize Computer….”

You're allowed to burn up to seven CDs of the same playlist, and you can burn unlimited CDs of single songs. You can copy your music collection to an unlimited number of iPods.
