Oh..... iTunes gives you the facility to burn a limited number of CDs from DRM protected music purchased from the iTunes store. I think this would make it legal. If you then transfer those CDs to a Google Music account owned by you, it should still be fine. The main thing, if ever questioned about music held on Google is to be able to produce the CD you burned and demonstrate that you burned it legally, in line with Apple's terms and conditions (and agreed between Apple and their partners in the media industry).

If OTOH you find a utility that strips the protection from DRM protected iTunes music, and then transfer that music to Google Music, you would be substantially in breach of the Digital Millenium Copyright act which forbids circumventing copyright measures. Daft, I know.
