I had iTunes on my laptop, I authorized it through iTunes, now that laptop broke, got the laptop fixed, authorized iTunes again and 3X. I'd already used the option to "De-authorize All Computers" and It's happened again. So, I built myself a computer and now I can't download anything through iTunes. Apparently, I have to wait one year to be able to authorize my PC.

Can't you do something without waiting such a time?

Contacting iTunes (Apple) would be your best bet, and explain what happened. In the future, I'd suggest using Amazon instead since they aren't so restrictive on media you own. – nerdwaller Jan 23 '13 at 22:52
@nerdwaller: IIRC, iTunes has already stopped putting restrictions on music they sell. – grawity Jan 23 '13 at 23:45
@grawity - As far as DRMs, you're right. (iTunes "Plus" Tracks). However, for older songs and authorized computers (ones that can download DRMed or new "Plus", or play DRMed at all) they haven't. They're very restrictive. – nerdwaller Jan 23 '13 at 23:50
@nerdwaller - Actually all of their music is DRM free which is thanks to Amazon increasing the price of a music track by $0.30. As for the problem at hand, the only way to solve this, is to contact Apple Support. – Ramhound Jan 24 '13 at 1:39
