Apple Fixes PyMusique DRM-Free Interface

Last week Jon Lech Johansen announced to be working on an iTunes Music Store interface that lets users purchase DRM-free music: PyMusique. Today Apple already fixed this hack, making it necessary for some users to update their iTunes software if they want to continue to use the iTunes Music Store:
"The security hole in the iTunes Music Store which was recently exploited has been closed, and as a consequence the iTunes Music Store will now sell music only to customers using iTunes version 4.7."
One can still listen to previews of songs through PyMusqique, but purchasing them is no longer possible. It is unclear if Apple will take any legal steps against the PyMusique creators.
