The most annoying limitation concerns the possibility or not to transfer songs legally purchased from one computer to another . Some jukebox exclude this possibility. This is the case of Messaggerie Digital , MSN Music Store, itunes and United Music MegaStore ( all stores that take advantage of the practice in database OD2 ) .

So you open the drop-down menu in which you will have to select Tools, and then the command “Manage License ” .
At this point click on the button ” Backup ” and stored in the directory where you save the backup file. In Windows XP the folder is My Documents / My Music. Then save the song WMA and its backup files in a new folder on your PC where you want them to transfer. The last thing to do is to ” activate” the license to the new computer . Select the file of the song you downloaded , launch Windows Media Player , choose the song transferred , select the Tools, and , as you have done previously , the License Manager item .
Then just click on the Reset button to listen to the song again . It is a cumbersome procedure and executable only in the case that the computer to which you wish to transfer the song to be equipped with an Internet connection . Otherwise the reset operation of the license is impossible. As for the recovery of interrupted download purchased music , almost all stores allow you to resume the process of transferring the file.
The most common way typically involves the recovery of downloads noting some data from e- mail sent from the online store at time of purchase : depending on the circumstances you may need the serial number, or the transfer link track or a numerical code.

The Digital Rights Management in fact it is not a defense designed to counter the hackers, nor to hinder consumers ‘experts’ with the hobby of sharing, but a tool that complicates the lives of the common user .
Just go to a common computer store , buy one of the numerous audio editing software and perform a simple operation, maybe not covered by the purchasing licenses online jukebox , but certainly up today not illegal , to convert the song bought online from WMA to MP3 . all information of DRM are so lost and the file audio is free of any constraint and limit!at the user should evaluate positively. The fact remains that all the jukebox must fulfill all the obligations provided for by law in regarding information to be provided to the consumer. “
