Why Cannot Download Spotify Music to iTunes

To protect the copyright of the songs, Spotify music is encrypted by format protection. In result, you can only import local files and playlist from iTunes, but can't export any content from the Spotify catalogue or offline playlists back into iTunes or onto any mp3 player or anything else. Therefore, in order to import Spotify playlist to iTunes, the first step is to remove the digital rights management from Spotify songs once and for all.
