DRM issues

If you have purchased music or video from iTunes store, the thing becomes a bit complex. You probably don't know that most of purchased video clips and music from iTunes store are locked by Apple's FairPlay DRM protection and can't play on non-Apple devices. It means you can't play purchased iTunes contents on your HTC phone without conversion.
