    I'm not sure if this is allowed ... so here it goes ...

    Is there any way to defeat the DRM that is in Movielink downloaded movies? Are there any projects? Are there any security discussions that you have come across? The best scenario would be to allow me to convert my movies without restrictions or strip out the DRM restrictions.

    Unlike something like iTunes (Apple) using DRM to make sure you can't share music you have bought and can keep forever, Movielink DRM is so that you can't use the movie beyond the time limit. By removing the DRM your infact doing the the same as if you rented a movie and never took it back only you aren't going to be charged for it so it's technically stealing IMO.

    That is like saying it's ok to break the rules at one store and not in another. No matter how you look at it, apps like Jhymm that do take DRM protection out of Itunes downloaded songs, it is still against what is supposed to be acceptable to Apple, yet JHym is celebrated by many while this is frowned upon. In any case I doubt such an application exists that automatically take out the DRM protection of Movielink files, knowing this I was hoping more to see some kind of already on-going discussion or technical papers about Movielink DRM.

    It is not right to break the rules at all. So even cracking iTunes's DRM is bad.

    Sorry, talking about this is against the rules in my interpretation. So lets stop it here.
