Apple Makes You Promise Not to Use iTunes to Build a Nuclear Bomb

Apple Makes You Promise Not to Use iTunes to Build a Nuclear Bomb

Posted January 12, 2012 at 5:58am by iClarified
Apple's iTunes Terms and Conditions is a huge document with a lot of rules you agree to abide by in order to use the service.

Since most people just click 'Agree' without reading the terms, it may surprise you to know that Apple makes you promise not to use the application to build a nuclear bomb.

Here's the section as first noticed by @markgurman:

By using the Licensed Application, you represent and warrant that you are not located in any such country or on any such list. You also agree that you will not use these products for any purposes prohibited by United States law, including, without limitation, the development, design, manufacture, or production of nuclear, missile, or chemical or biological weapons.

I guess its possible that Apple could sue Iran in the future, after America and Israel save the world from nuclear Iran.

Maybe they got this idea from some people who are actually building a nuclear bomb while listening to iTunes..? Mmmm... lol!

As always, iClarified is late to the party. This has been discussed millions of times YEARS ago. This is nothing new. Seems like the iClarified staff are running out of news/bullshit to write about.

Instead of a boom and a mushroom cloud, it plays music and makes an iCloud

That's a pretty standard clause. I remember the same thing in an Oracle license back in 2002.

Maybe Apple should patent the term 'iCBM' as well. Duh.

Does this mean I have to get rid of my "Anthrax" Albums?

Damn I guess since I made a promise not to build it without reading the fine print I have to take it apart now huh?

Lol gotta love apple. That's so funny

Probably they included this just to check if anyone ever read the full agreement. Someone just did. Wow, it takes corage and a lot of free time...

Lol. I wonder if the nuclear warhead would listen to itunes music while diploying.
