iTunes Questions

Can I share purchased music?

Can I copy whole albums from my iPod to the iPod I've bought my daughter for Christmas using iTunes?

If so, how?

You can authorise up to 5 devices to play music that is protected that you have downloaded from iTunes Music Store, you can see the authorised devices in the apple store account on the apple website.

An authorised eevice can be a computer running itunes software or an apple handheld device like an ipod, iphone or ipad.

More info here

iTunes Store: About authorization and deauthorization

But do they all have to be under the same iTunes account?

Look at the file type in your iTunes listing.

Can't remember exactly when but in either 2008 or 2009 Apple stopped adding DRM protection to music files sold via iTunes. Files from prior to this will be marked as "protected AAC" and those post "purchased AAC". The former are linked to authorised devices the latter can be freely shared irrespective of account. Any protected files can also be upgraded to the non-protected version (called iTunes plus) via iTunes so you can have all your purchased music free of DRM.

All video purchased via iTunes is protected and has to be linked to an account on the five machine rule per Ghosty's post.
