Why you need to remove DRM Protection from iTunes movies?

The iTunes store offers rental and purchase services, and for our favorite movies, we are free to choose to rent or purchase their playback rights. Normally, the purchase cost of iTunes movies far exceeds the rent. With the same video quality as the purchase, the rental is more easily accepted by users. However, iTunes movie rentals have quite a few restrictions, and they are:

You can only save movies rented from the iTunes Store on your device for 30 days. When the time expires, the movie will disappear from your library. Once you start watching, you are allowed to complete the movie in 24 hours (United States) or 48 hours (anywhere else).
Thanks to DRM copy protection, you can only play movies on iTunes compatible devices such as iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Apple TV. In addition, rented movies can only exist on one device at a time.
For Mac or PC, you need to install iTunes 10 or higher. If you want to rent iTunes movies on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, you should make sure these iOS devices are running iOS 3.1.3 or higher.

Because of Apple's FairPlay DRM protection, movies rented and purchased from iTunes are subject to many limitations, including limited expiration dates, playback devices, and more. So, is there any way we can do to extend the time period of the rented iTunes movies or permanently eliminate the 24-hour time lock so that we can keep the iTunes rental forever as we like?

To solve the above problems, you can simply remove DRM from M4V movies purchases and rentals from iTunes.
