Google for Free iTunes Plus (.m4a) Songs

iTunes now allows users to buy DRM free songs. These songs have no copy protection. Will people start posting these for public consumption? Here is a nice google search to find folders and directories full of these DRM free files.


Files with the .m4a extension are mp4 files without copy protection. This is the format in which iTunes Plus songs are delivered.

These songs may not contain DRM; however, they frequently do contain watermarks containing user info and the email address that originally purchased the files.

The powerful searches described below will find folders and directories that contain these DRM free iTunes plus files.

For years people have been demanding a DRM free format. This search can be used for good or for evil. Gut check. Will you support Apple’s brave decision or go for the cheap music?

All m4a files…

Google: -inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:”index of” “Last modified” m4a

Or for specific files. Replace band with whichever search term you wish…

Google: -inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:”index of” “Last modified” m4a band

Please note… all of these files will not be iTunes plus files as the m4a format was in use prior to Apple’s decision to sell in this format. However, they will typically be DRM-free music files.

    Thanks! is there by any chance I would get new tracks?

  • Akshay

    Although the search is for .m4a, it lists directories with .mp3

    • Sure. Most directories with m4a files are also going to have mp3 files. This is because most people’s collections contain both file types.

  • Akshay

    so are there any drm free iTunes videos in any directories?
