Anyone with a PocketPC device can do it.... just get the latest media
player and load the files to the Device, when the software does this it
decrypts the files and removes licensing info - I guess most pocket
devices don't have the power to decode and decrypt. So Microsoft are
guilty of violating the DMCA by building a system which bypasses
mechanisms used to protect digital content.
