MSN music store authorization?

Hy,
This is my first post (hy to everyone), I'm writing here hoping that someone could help me. Ok, I have all my music from MSN music store (great site), I bought a lot of music from there. Few days ago they sent me an e-mail advising me to authorize all my music cause by the end of the summer they will close the licenses server so I won't be able to transfer my music on other devices. My question is: should I get license for each song or there is a easy way to authorize my music?

Not sure about that one, but IMHO, you'd be far better off stripping the DRM with one of several tools in the "Decrypting" forum. Try FreeMe2.

You should try Tunebite, very practice and useful. Besides it removes the DRM protection it also converts the files (audio and video) into the format you need.

I heard that there are some tools which can remove that DRM protection but, hey, they are legal??? cause I don't want to mess with law.

Right now, I would worry a lot more about your wma files than the law. If you change hardware a few times, the files will be unplayable forever, because you can't get a new license from M$ anymore.

You just have to find a program that strips the DRM without losing soundquality.

btw i hope you learned your lesson to never buy any DRM music anymore.

You're right, I have to worry more about my music, not law. And regarding the files quality, that's why I posted on forum to see some opinions. And, believe me, I won't buy DRMed music anymore. When I received their e-mail I sweared like a trooper cause I got so mad...

hey, it's legal to remove the copy protection if you remove it for personal use and not for sharing with other persons. Only then it is illegal.

Paying customers of Microsoft’s MSN Music store can breathe a sigh of relief, but the real problems remain unaddressed. DRM-crippled music still has an expiration date –- whenever the company that sold that music becomes unable or unwilling to continue supporting the copy protection.
