How to Free iTunes Audio Books from DRM to Cater to More Players

Only until the copy protection is removed from iTunes audio books, can those files be transferred and played back on more Apple or non-Apple devices like Android, Zen, Zune HD etc.

- Can you help me convert an iTunes audio book, like The Girl on the Train, to remove the DRM?
- Of course yes! Not only The Girl on the Train, but also any iTunes audio book purchases can be decrypted here, either for savoring on non-iOS or sharing with friends or burning into disc...

iTunes and iOS do belong to the same group! Any audio books purchased from iTunes are so fussy and only iOS devices can afford them. Specifically, Apple has utilized its own DRM (Digital Rights Management) into iTunes audio books, as well as other media files, so that any other iOS devices with different Apple ID or non-iOS players have no way to access them for playback. To unlock the DRM-encrypted audio book for enjoying on more Apple devices or non-Apple Android, MP3 Player, PSP and more, an all-in-one iTunes audio book DRM freer and converter is badly in need.

Please respect to all the works with intellectual property rights, and we don't advocate freeing iTunes files from DRM for impersonal or profitable use.
