How to remove DRM from iTunes rented movies?
Limitations of rental DRM videos from iTunes Store:
As we know, iTunes Store provides plenty of interesting movies for people to have fun. However, the rented movie downloaded from iTunes Store will expire in 24-hour once you watch it. Sometimes you may need to watch the rented movies later. Sometimes you may want to enjoy the rented iTunes movies on other players like iRiver, Creative Zen, Android devices, etc. But the DRM protection limits you to do so.
The rented movies from iTunes Store are under DRM protection so that you cannot enjoy them freely on non-apple devices. Moreover, the movies will be automatically removed from your iTunes library at the end of the rental period because of the DRM protection.

Is it legal to remove DRM from iTunes Rentals?
If you only use the DRM-free movies for personal entertainment and don’t distribute them to anyone else, I think it is legal. DRM protects the digital rights of the copyright owners. But it doesn’t mean that anyone wanting to enjoy the rented movies from iTunes Store on his Creative Zen has criminal intent. You paid for it, so just enjoy it as you like!
