My questions: With 4 laptops in the house each with their own iTunes accounts.
Can each of their iTunes purchased songs be listened to on each laptop?
Can the songs be transferred to each laptop?

Share my library on my local network and Home Sharing are two different options, and both can be enabled at the same time. Share my library allows any Mac on the network to play music from the other Mac, but files cannot be copied from the host Mac. Home Sharing requires all Macs on the network to be logged into the same Home Sharing Apple ID in order to play AND copy files from the other Mac. Share my Library does not require all Macs to be logged into Home Sharing, they only need to be on the network. The Home Sharing icon and Share my Library icon are different. The Home Sharing is a House icon, the Share my Library icon is a shared playlist icon.
