    Even though I like my iPod this "assume the user is a thief" functionality of iTunes is really annoying.
    I don't use iTunes anymore to buy music, not since my old laptop died and I lost ~100 songs. However, it's perfectly fine for installing non copy protected mp3s onto my iPod, or burning them. It's when you use it to buy music from Apple that you get into trouble.

    You could probably call Apple to let you redownload your songs that you purchased, but they warn you that they don't normally do it and that it will be the last time you can redownload the music. I think that you can authorize another computer to be able to download or transfer the music. But I'm not sure, because I don't buy music online.

    Actually, that's not just iTunes..If you use any other download service(legal or not) you still are faced with the same dilema..As well, periodically, when you buy music from the iTMS, it reminds you to backup your songs...Something that regardless of your situation, should be done no matter how stable your computer(macs are the most) is.

    Enjoy
