    I was wondering if there was a way on A MAC computer to transfer my wonderful "The Office" episodes from iTunes to my Android device. I only have access to macs.

    I know some of you are going to say that I need to get an iPhone, but c'mon--I'm not going to get a stupid phone just to play iTunes. lol just having fun.

    Thanks
    P.S. sorry for the disorganized post ;P

    Actually, does anyone know where to find the TV show files?

    Are you asking where to find the files on your Mac?

    If that is the case, this is where I've found them to be:

    Music--iTunes--iTunes Music--TV Shows

    Legally, I dont think so as I believe it's in the terms of service that you basically wont do that. I know there are programs out there that supposedly will do it though. I haven't tried as I really had video on my iPhone as more of a novelty.

    Now, didn't apple get rid of their DRM. I'm very confused on this. Was the DRM removal only on the music?

    Just because it is against the TOS doesn't necessarily mean it is illegal.

    I'm pretty sure it is just the music that they stopped using DRM on.

    As far as your original question of how to do it....There are programs that can do it, but I don't use itunes so I wouldn't know which are the better ones.

    Thanks. Is it legal to take it off? I spent 50 bucks on it, so I hope I can indeed use it on my android.

    There is contradicting laws on it. Technically circumventing DRM is illegal according to the DMCA. But, you bought it and want to use it on your own device for personal reasons which would be considered "fair use" under other laws. Realistically there is almost no way they would find out about so you'd be fine.

    Hmm, tricky question.... in general terms probably yes, but linking to specific software or web sites would be a no-no. The big problem for a high-profile site like AF is that anything that that could be construed as encouraging pirating of DRM-protected media is a potential legal problem.

    Okay, does anyone have any software names? -Keep in min that I did pay the 50 bucks for the content; I'm not stealing it in the first place. ;)
