Yesterday we mentioned the rumor was going around that Bruce Willis was suing Apple over rules having to do with what happens to a digital music library after the owner passes away. It seemed rather strange for Willis be filing suit against Apple, but I guess someone needs to do it. The way Apple’s rules on digital content read now, when you die ownership reverts to Apple.
That is ridiculous considering that you pay money for the content and you should be able to consider it yours. Apparently, the story, which originally surfaced from Daily Mail, is not true. This debunking of the rumor allegedly comes from Willis’s wife Emma Hemming via twitter.
I wish somebody with the means to fight for all us little guys would take up this cause. If you die and have thousands of dollars worth of digital music and video, that content should belong to your estate not the company you purchased it from.
