iMovie users are able to hack FairPlay DRM-protected songs bought from the iTunes Music Store, it has emerged.

Macnews.de has reported that users can hack the DRM-protected songs by importing them into iMovie, selecting Share from the menu, choosing the option: QuickTime and compressing the 'movie' through expert options.

The file can then be exported back into iTunes as an unprotected file. Once unprotected it can be freely copied and shared – which is, of course, illegal.

When it launched iLife, Apple made much of the fact that the software was seamlessly integrated. It would seem that in this case it is too integrated.
