Strip Zune DRM from Marketplace Songs With FairUse4WM

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Zune Software" @ 09:57 PM

Before I post this, I want to state up front that I deeply respect the rights of artists. I don't have in my possession any music that I do not own. When I like a certain song, I buy it. I'm still tending to buy CDs more than digital downloads because DRM is still a hassle. When I buy a song, I want to be able to play that song on any of my computers, any of my devices, anywhere, at any time. The Zune Marketplace is no better than iTunes or MSN Music: it limits how I can use the music that I paid for. Thankfully, that has changed with the release of an update for FairUse4WM. I hate DRM so much that all of my Zune Marketplace music is kept in a separate folder away from the 77 GB of "real" music that I have because I consider DRM'd music to be poisoned.



I downloaded the file, followed the instructions, and now I have all of my Zune tracks DRM free! While I see no problem using this tool to remove the DRM on individual songs that you've purchased, it's completely unethical to use it on Zune Pass songs...so don't be a bad boy or girl, only use this on songs you really own, not the songs you're renting.

Trouble Removing Zune Software? UnZoone to the Rescue.

If you have been unfortunate enough to have the Zune software cause issues with your PC, and you are having trouble uninstalling it, then this utility may be for you. UnZoone is a small utility which removes registry entries and unregisters DLLs related to the Zune software. (Note: I've not used this software myself so I cannot attest to its usefulness.)
