Okay so I know that when you change the system time on the computer you can't play the file. But what if you change the time zone? I've tried it and they work!!! Could this be a good work around? Quick note though, while looking more deeply. This does not make iTunes say that there is like 36 hours. All it does is say that, for example me the movie expires 12 hours from the time that is on the system. I just realized that it actually dosn't increase the time at all. Oh well.
