njondet writes "French-law.net
reports that Ratatium.com, a French website specialized in technology news and software downloads, has just launched
Privatunes, a free software that anonymizes DRM-free files bought on iTunes Plus. Last month's revelations that the DRM-free files sold by EMI on iTunes Plus came with user's full name and account e-mail embedded in them had raised serious privacy concerns. Ratatium.com
explains (in French) that Privatunes is aimed at guaranteeing the privacy of users but also their rights as consumers to freely share and trade the songs they have purchased. However, the claim that this software is perfectly legal will surely be tested."
"The algorithm to do that is extremely nasty. You might want to mug
someone with it."
