Tunebite Strips Nokia Comes With Music DRM

Well, that sure didn’t take long: Tunebite just upgraded its universal music converter software, and as Engadget reports, one of its key features is the ability to remove the copy protection from Nokia’s Comes With Music tracks.

There’s actually not much going on here; all Tunebite is doing is pulling audio off your PC’s sound card inputs, so it’s basically the same as playing any music through your computer and re-recording it (with a very minimal loss in sound quality).

But the net effect is that you can then make duplicates of any music you get through Nokia’s service and then move it to a new cell phone, or to, say, your car or iPod. Which is exactly what Nokia doesn’t want you to do, but hey, we’re just reporting on it.
