Customers who have purchased music from Microsoft's now-defunct MSN Music store are now facing a decision they never anticipated making: commit to which computers (and OS) they want to authorize forever, or give up access to the music they paid for. Why? Because Microsoft has decided that it's done supporting the service and will be turning off the MSN Music license servers by the end of this summer.

In theory the exact same thing would happen if ITMS went *funbags* up. 

DRM is of the devil.  Punishes the honest; the dishonest simply ignore it.

Let it out.  Stress is a killer.
