How to Remove DRM from WMA - It May be Worth the EffortWritten by W R Kirk
Technically, it's illegal to remove DRM from WMA protected music. Digital Rights Management (DRM) is part of music industry's effort to curb piracy. There are legitimate reasons for removing it, but first understand DRM can not be removed from file sharing network downloads. Most tracks can be legally copied 3 to 5 times, and this has been exceeded long before they appear on a peer-to-peer network. You must have either purchased music or have unrestricted free music downloads.
There is no easy way to remove DRM, but it can be removed with some effort and know-how. The best advice is to only download music in format you need, and that you have right to copy to an mp3 player, CD or other device. It's also important to determine that player will recognize and play DRM protected WMA track.
What if I Really Like songs and Want to convert them?
Let's say you've already downloaded music and need to convert to another audio codec. The common conversion method is to burn tracks on a CD, then rip them in desired codec's format. Even this requires special ripping software and numerous steps because DRM is still embedded in tracks. And because codecs like WMA, mp3, OGG, AAC, etc. are lossy formats, sound quality will be degraded.
