I present to you, the Ultimate DRM Buster 2000:
This nifty cable should allow you to copy all the protected music you want. You simply plug in one end to the earphone jack, you plug in the other to a microphone jack and you are set. There is some loss in quality, but hey – it works. It’s that easy. ;)
Here is what I think – it is not possible to plug the “analog hole”. Sure you can try to make analog copying difficult, degrade quality and etc… But it is not possible to ever eliminate low tech analog solutions.
Btw, I found that cable in the “assorted junk and cables” drawer at work. No idea what did it originally come with or what was it originally for.
Btw – this is intended as a joke. There are better ways to strip DRM from your media. I’m just trying to illustrate a point here: you don’t have to be a security expert, or a skillful cracker to break the DRM. Anyone can do it, with very simple tools – and there is no way to change it. Because as long as you can watch or hear the media, you can copy them.
