Ya, they don't care because its a lossy file anyways, and iirc, you can
only burn the song so many times. I wonder if they are able to obtain
stats on how many people burn music downloaded from iTunes, and at that,
how many people burn it onto a audio cd rather than a data cd.
But why would you buy from iTunes anyways, buying something you don't
really own just seems silly to me. I'd rather take my chances buying
the cd, then atleast I have a real copy of the music that I can do
whatever with, without any built in restrictions, and I won't buy audio
cd's that have built in drm either.
