Bruce Willis to fight Apple over music rights after his death | The Sun |Showbiz
The Die Hard actor, 57, 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.
Willis has asked advisers to set up a trust that holds his downloads, which reportedly include classics from the Beatles to Led Zeppelin, to get around this rule.
The action star is also backing legal moves to increase the rights of downloaders.
Apple can freeze users’ accounts if they suspect them of sharing tunes with others.
Chris Walton, an estate specialist at Irwin Mitchell, told a newspaper: “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.”
When it rain's it pours for Apple.. more bad PR and this one will hit everyone on the pocketbook when they realise they actually dont own their music they "bought" through iTunes.... they are in fact only renting it. Might actually be a bigger problem in Europe since here we have truth in advertising laws... which means when Apple says you can buy XXXXX on iTunes, then they are lying.
