Converting iTunes M4V to something that imports correctly in After Effects

I'm messing around with After Effects and would like to import a video file I purchased off iTunes. The error(and rightly so because of copyright) is that it's not authorized and AE cannot be used to play the content.

I would like to know if there is a way to take the file and convert it through some other program like FCP or Quicktime and be able to import properly.

Ermmmm, if it's copyrighted and it sounds like you do not have legal authority to do so; why do you persist with wanting to work with it?

There are ways to do it (we've had to do it to include a tv show my friend DP'ed for his reel on really short notice), but I would assume it's against the policy of this forum, and most, to tell you the methods.

For songs you can burn CD then rip to computer as mp3. But to itunes m4v video, even if you burn it to DVD, there is still DRM copyright protection of them, so, currently there is no way to do this.
