A new version of FairUse4WM hit the Internet two days ago which is able to strip the DRM - that is Digital Rights Management - right of music files that use MS DRM IBX components up to version 11.0.6000.6324. So, if you own a Zune, use the Yahoo music service, Urge or several other services you might want to give FairUse4WM a try and get rid of the DRM in the music.

The original post at the Doom9 forum lists several download locations and a short instruction on how to work with the drm stripper.

To actualize fair use rights with the new IBX, first run 'mirakagi' which will enter the IBX keys into the FairUse4WM blackbox-keys.txt text file.Next, you should use the attached version of FairUse4WM, 1.3Fix-2. This includes an important fix for a video corruption bug, often seen in scenes affording high compression.

Update: The program is no longer available on any of the sites it was hosted on. It is also unlikely that anyone still has use for the program due to advancements made. Still, if you are looking for the latest version of the program you can download it from the Freeware Files server where version 1.3 Fix 2 can be downloaded from directly.

This program will extract the personally identifiable information (decryption keys) from Media Player for the purpose of allowing the user to improve the interoperability of legitimacy acquired media files.

At least one file with an active license is necessary. Some systems will have multiple sets of identify information - try repeating the process with different licensed files.

Once keys have been recovered this page will not be shown. To return to this page, select "Back" from the File Selection page.

    hey, its me again, john doe….just wanted to let you know its july 2008, and my fairuse4wm is still working with my napster subscription, even thought i have updated napster multiple times.

    the key is that i have windows media player 10 installed. just uninstall wmp11 and install wmp10, then all your IBX’s will be old, thus all downloads from napster are based on wmp version, not napster version

    man, i love this….ive downloaded literally hundreds of gigs a month, and just archiving them with NO DRM at all, it rocks.

    oh yeah, then i can drop them into iTunes, which will convert them to a MP3….best setup yet, and its been working for over a year now.

    see microsoft thinks it beat fairuse4wm, but if you set up your computer with fairuse42m 1.3, wmp10, and napster – it still cracks!

    i love it!

    There’s one major thing that people aren’t talking about with this crack. The fact that it works on Subscription based tracks as well, (Napster, Rhapsody, Musicmatch) So you don’t have to purchase individual tracks. You can download as many songs as you want and crack them.
