The landscape of the music entertainment industry has never been the same since the late 1990s. A new form of audiophile music distribution using MP3s, Napster, Winamp, CD Ripping, and CD Burning contributed to this change. Unfortunately, with this new music revolution, we also had to deal with the byproducts of unlabeled files. One of my pet peeves is when I see an audio file mislabeled -or worse - not labeled at all.

So many milestones have happened since I last wrote about DRM-stripping with Hymn. For one, Apple plugged the iTunes hole that Hymn exploited in its iTunes 6 release. Later on, a talented cracker by the name of “igorsk” revealed an exploit program for the iTunes 6 DRM. Apple responded by patching that hole with its next release of iTunes 7. Then miraculously - less than a day later - igorsk cracked the FairPlay iTunes 7 DRM!
