Apple Computer lured millions of PC users into its online music store when it released a version of its popular iTunes software for Windows, but it also attracted a less savory element -- hackers. Just 10 days after the release of "WinTunes," a crafty codesman at Trinity College began distributing MyTunes, a program that could turn the Apple software into a peer-to-peer pirate ship a la Kazaa, Grokster, Morpheus and BearShare. Now, another hacker has figured out how to extract music from Apple's copyright-protected files.
All you have to do to "defeat" the CP is to burn an audio CD. So the "hacker's" software is useless.
