Jon Johansen’s ITMS Reverse-Engineering Continues

Jon Johansen has reverse-engineered the encryption iTunes 4.7 uses to communicate to the iTunes Music Store, allowing his PyMusique app to work again. PyMusique is a thorn in Apple’s side, because it allows one purchase music from ITMS without DRM, taking advantage of the fact that it’s iTunes that adds the DRM to your purchased music, not the ITMS itself.

I’m not sure what Apple can do here, because suing isn’t going to make this source code go away.
