I'm confused. Are you saying someone could give a friend a copy of their Audible audiobook and load it onto their iDevice via iTunes? That doesn't make sense to me. Doesn't iTunes need to be linked to your Audible account in some way?

You authorize iTunes to your Audible account.

Please don't discuss "giving" a friend a copy of copyrighted media. MR will not provide help with piracy.

Thank you for clarifying this!

Sorry. I was just trying to figure out how iBooks figures out you are an authorized user, because it didn't make sense to me that you could listen to an Audible audiobook otherwise. I wasn't trying to encourage piracy — quite the opposite.

I have edited my question above accordingly (though Anemic Oak quotes the original, poorly worded question )
