Apple uses DMCA to shutdown PlayFair Website

04/10, 11:45am

Apple uses DMCA

Apple has issued a cease and desist to Sourceforge to shut down the PlayFair web site using the The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), however, the website is still available via the Google Cache. The PlayFair application, still available elsewhere on the Web (but looking for a new home), claims to decode iTunes Music Store protected-AAC files to unencrypted AAC files with no quality loss. (In the past, Apple has also used the DMCA against publications--including MacNN--for linking to information on the web about applications that it claims violate the DMCA.)
