QTFairUse is an open source program first released in November 2003 by Jon Johansen. The program attempts to dump the output of a QuickTime stream to a file, which could bypass the digital rights management software used to encrypt content of music from media such as those distributed by the iTunes Music Store, Apple Computer's on-line music store. Although these resulting raw data files were unplayable in their final form by most media players at the time of release, they represent the first attempt at breaking Apple's encryption.
