Reality Check on iTunes 4 streaming

Eric Tilton says that since that iTunes Music Store music is DRM protected, it can't be copied (via iTunes streaming) from one computer to another and then played back. Has he tested that assumption? If the computer is able to play it back during normal iTunes sharing/streaming, is it really DRM'd in that form? Of course if the actual AAC file was copied to the other computer it would have to be authorized first, but perhaps the streamed version isn't the same as the actual file.

Has anyone tried this? Is Eric correct or not?
