The purpose of HYMN (Hear Your Music Anywhere) is to allow you to exercise your fair-use rights under copyright law. It allows you to free your iTunes Music Store (protected AAC / m4p) purchases from their DRM restrictions with no sound quality loss. These songs can then be played outside of the iTunes environment. It includes a drag 'n drop graphical user interface (GUI).
Why use HYMN?
- Use HYMN to decrypt your iTunes protected AAC files so that they can be played on non-iTunes-capable, but AAC-capable devices and operating systems, such as Linux.
- Use HYMN to eliminate the five computer limit imposed by iTunes.
- Use HYMN to make archival backups of your music.
- Use HYMN as the first step in converting your music from protected AAC to MP3, Ogg or your other favorite audio file format, for use with your non-iPod portable audio player.
- Use HYMN to demonstrate your belief in the principles of fair-use under copyright law.
