Thanks to the tip here, I was able to make a smart playlist containing all the DRM encumbered music in my iTunes library.

I remember in the past there was an offer from iTunes Plus that lets you pay a fee to "upgrade" your DRM'ed songs to unprotected ones.

Does this still exist? How do I get non-DRM'ed versions of these songs nowadays?


BTW, I am running iTunes 10.5.1 on Mac OS X 10.6.8.

I tried it, but got a message saying I have already upgraded to iTunes plus, and no other options. However, I can obviously see DRM'ed songs in my library. What should I do??? – hpy Nov 20 '11 at 0:54
