PlayFair Project Pulled Off SourceForge

It looks like the controversial PlayFair program that strips the DRM off iTunes songs has been pulled from SourceForge and offshored to http://www.sarovar.org.  I can see how this program can be used illegally.  For one, these unprotected files could now conceivably be traded on the P2P networks.  It will no doubt cut into Apple’s bottom line if the program was used in this scenario.  The only practical application of this program is that it enables you to use the legally downloaded song file with other player applications other than iTunes.  At the moment, the files from iTunes can only be used with iTunes / iPod.  In my experience, the program is still buggy and not all songs worked correctly after the program applied its magic.  We shall see how this all plays out in the upcoming weeks.
