When I rip an original CD of mine, are the resulting MP4's in iTunes library protected from unauthorized access? Is my iTunes password still necessary?

When you export a original cd with iTunes, it does add some meta data to the file unique to your iTunes account, your iTunes password isn't stored in the file obviously. – Ramhound Oct 25 '11 at 11:34

No. iTunes does not apply any kind of DRM to songs imported from CDs, only to those bought from iTunes Store – and even that is 1) not being done anymore; 2) not dependent in any way on your password.

I don't know about "unauthorized access", if your talking about applying DRM protection or... I don't think that if you import or "rip" media, that media becomes DRM protected...
