It does use DRM, so the player needs to be able to undo the DRM.  If it where 
just mp3's it would be fine.  I think to strip the DRM you would have to burn 
to CD and rip back and complete pain.

One day hopefully the DRM issue will die and we can once again get back to 
technology working for users instead of being the cop/judge/jury system that 
DRM is.
