In 2007, nearly four years after the Music Store launch, Steve Jobs wrote “Thoughts On Music”, in which he called upon record labels to abandon the DRM strategy:“Imagine a world where every online store sells DRM-free music encoded in open licensable formats.In such a world, any player can play music purchased from any store, and any store can sell music which is playable on all players.
Or you can keep two copies of each digital music file.By default, these files are in your i Tunes folder.To find your folder: Mac: Make sure that you're in Finder.Your i Tunes library is a database that i Tunes uses to organize your media.It's made up of all of the music and other content that you add to i Tunes.I’ve been using i Tunes to manage my music library since it was first released in 2001.

i Tunes uses i Tunes library files and your i Tunes Media folder to organize and store your media.
Your i Tunes library files track the media you add to i Tunes, how you've organized it, and other information such as playlists.
From the menu bar at the top of your computer screen, choose On the Advanced tab of i Tunes Preferences, you can choose where you store and how you organize your i Tunes media files.
On the Advanced tab, look in the box under "i Tunes Media folder location" for the location of your i Tunes Media folder.
