Bruce Willis May Sue Apple Over iTunes Library Ownership

Bruce Willis, a well known Hollywood actor, is considering legal action against Apple over his desire to leave his iTunes music collection to his daughters, report The Daily.

Willis has discovered that, like anyone who has bought music online, he does not actually own the tracks but is instead 'borrowing' them under a licence.

Most purchasers do not bother to read the details of the terms and conditions they agree to when buying an album but the small print makes it clear that music bought through iTunes should not be passed on to others.

Willis has apparently spent thousands of dollars on purchasing music through iTunes and would like to leave it to his kids when he dies. One solution considered is to establish a family trust as the 'holders' of his music library. Another is to support ongoing legal action in five states that seeks to increase the rights given to downloaders.

Solicitor Chris Walton told The Daily, "Lots of people will be surprised on learning all those tracks and books they have bought over the years don't actually belong to them. It's only natural you would want to pass them on to a loved one. The law will catch up, but ideally Apple and the like will update their policies and work out the best solution for their customers."

Note to all you fruit bashers; this is NOT an Apple issue. Complain to the music labels and sue their asses.
