Will copyThing remove any DRM from media files?


On October 22, 2001, one day before the official release of the very first iPod, the very first iPod utility “iPod Free File Access” came into being.
It was very simple but it already allowed the user to copy songs from an iPod. Over the years this project has evolved into an application with more features and a very easy-to-use interface.
