Fairplay DRM is a kind of Digtial Right Management introduced by Apple Inc. This DRM facility is usually added in all of Apple products and digital content, like Quicktime media, Apple TV, iTunes store, iPhone, iPod, iPad. It's well known by us in the music, movies, TV shows and books we purchased or rented from iTunes store, even the Apps we downloaded from iTunes store are Fairplay DRM protected as well.
Every Fairplay DRM encrypted files are encoded with MP4 container format and AAC audio stream codec. When we buy or rent a movie or song from iTunes store, we will soon get a authorization license to unlock the content. It's called the user key, which is encrypted by the Fairplay DRM algorithm.
You are not allowed to use the user key everywhere you want. Fairplay DRM limits the numbers of computers or devices to use the license, which is usually 5 computers only. All iTunes videos, music, or books we purchase or rent from iTunes store are limited to reuse and play with Apple's products only. We can't not edit these content at all and share the content to others, let alone we can enjoy the movies, songs or books on other portable devices.
