Bruce Willis is one of the coolest guys ever. Well, except for that one time he tried to have a singing career in the 80s. But he’s a great actor. And now he might launch his own legal war against Apple and the iTunes store. You see, Willis has a massive digital music collection and he wants his girls to inherit it, just like if he had purchased physical copies of the music. That’s not alot to expect. However, Apple’s current iTunes terms don’t allow that.
As the rules are, all of the music you buy on iTunes is worthless once you pass away. It may be stupid, wrong and ignorant, but that’s how the rules are set up. Apparently the 57-year-old actor is considering setting up a trust that would allow his daughters to use his music collection.
At least someone is standing up to corporate stupidity. My feeling is that if I buy something, digital or otherwise, I own it forever and can do what I like with it. Otherwise, just what did you buy?
