Bruce Willis might sue Apple over his iTunes collection

Yippe kay-yay, Apple.

Bruce Willis wants to distribute his iTunes music collection to his sons after he dies. However, Apple’s TOS restricts any user to distribute it in such a way. The action-star now might sue the consume electronics giant over the issue.

With iTunes, or possibly with any such closed music service, when a user purchases a song, he does not completely owns it, but just buys the rights to download and listen to the song. Here’s how Apple’s TOS reads:

“This license does not allow you to use the Licensed Application on any Apple Device that you do not own or control, and except as provided in the Usage Rules, you may not distribute or make the Licensed Application available over a network where it could be used by multiple devices at the same time. This license does not allow you to use the Licensed Application on any Apple Device that you do not own or control, and except as provided in the Usage Rules, you may not distribute or make the Licensed Application available over a network where it could be used by multiple devices at the same time.”

Willis is clearly not happy with this and is seeking Apple to grant users more control with what they can do with their songs.

We are not sure if the actor will have any chance in court since he agreed to the TOS. But he might be able to bring some much needed attention to it.
