Bruce Willis has amassed a large collection of music. He’s very proud of it, and wants to pass it down to his kids. Unfortunately he bought a lot of it via iTunes, and under the iTunes TOS you cannot share music. The whimsey of this case is nice, but there’s no way he has a leg to stand on.
That’s because the oft-joked about iTunes terms & conditions window features a bit about sharing your library – and you’re not allowed to. So that 99c song you bought was bought under the pretence that you agree’d to the terms, including the inability you have to share said music. As such, trying to sue Apple is a bit of a strange pursuit.
Moreover, sharing records, cd’s and beyond is usually against a labels’ terms & conditions. As noted by myself when my father was talking about giving me his extensive vinyl collection. I looked up the rules about it, out of curiosity, and he’s not allowed. He’ll still do it, of course – much in the same way Bruce Willis could just give his kids’ his iTunes credentials and say nothing about it.
UPDATE: This story is not true.
