Sort your iTunes songs by kind and you may find MPEG audio file, Purchased AAC audio file and Protected AAC audio file, etc. What’s the difference between them?
MPEG audio file: This is a standard MP3 file, the classic digital audio format. You may have downloaded it from the web or ripped the song from a CD using iTunes' built-in MP3 encoder.
Protected AAC audio file: A Protected AAC file was the default file type for songs purchased from the iTunes Store prior to the introduction of the Digital Rights Management (DRM)-free iTunes Plus format in April 2009. "Protected” means the song is DRM protected and can only be played on iTunes authorized with the Apple ID. This prevents the song from being copied or shared.
Purchased AAC audio file: A Purchased AAC file is what a Protected AAC file becomes when it's been upgraded to the iTunes Plus format. This file was still purchased at the iTunes Store, but it no longer has the DRM-based copy restrictions. All songs sold in the iTunes Store after April 2009 are in the DRM-free Purchased AAC audio file format.

Ordinary music converter can’t convert protected AAC audio files since they are DRM protected, thus you need a music converter with DRM removal feature.
