iTunes fairplay DRM is certainly better than Microsofts DRM for music. I think it lets you use the song on up to 5 devices, and you can vary these 5 at any time.

Once bought they are yours, and itunes will still let you move them about even if you haven't bought any music from them for a while

having said that, Apple are keen to market non DRM music, since they argue that DRM doesn't stop the pirates but just hampers legit users
