    if itunes doesnt allow this activity because of record companies:( is their a easy way to copy all the music from one to another? i would just try to move some of the music in the files in Finder but that usally ends up in a error 4 hours into the transfer

    well mac programmers you guys should make a program that can easily share music across a network

    and make it compatiable with both pc/osx :)

    if all you want to do is listen to it from another machine on the same network, just set your iTunes from all your machines to share their music and look for shared music. it's under the "sharing" tab in preferences. you won't be able to copy it, but you'll be able to see and listen to the music on all the machines on your network that are sharing your music.

    If both computers are on the same network, it is simply a matter of copying and pasting from the iTunes folder on the mac, to the shared folder on the PC. I've done it many times myself.

    Exactly. The fact that it is a music file doesn't change how file transfering works. if they aren't on the same network, create one and transfer.
