All of my tunes, including those bought from iTunes, will convert to MP3. It has been so long since I have seen any with DRM restrictions, I have to believe that it is no longer a part of iTunes. You have to remember that when the iTunes store first started, it was an unknown. Jobs had to live with DRM because the music labels held all the cards. Once iTunes became the biggest music retailer in the nation, Jobs was able to call the shots and defeat DRM.
