Another Apple’s court, this time with “Die Hard”
Comrade Bruce Willis extremely does not like fact that he will not able to pass a collection of music from the tuna (iTunes) for their daughters inherited …
The actor has collected a huge music library, and “wants to leave the haul to his daughters Rumer, Scout and Tallulah. But under iTunes’ current terms and conditions, customers essentially only ‘borrow’ tracks rather than owning them outright. So any music library amassed like that would be worthless when the owner dies.”
English estate attorney, Chris Walton:
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.
If you read it carefully, you will notice that you do not buy music tracks, and rent them.
