Hollywood megastar Bruce Willis is planning to sue Apple over the terms and conditions of its iTunes service.
UK Tabloid The Sun reports that the Die Hard and Armageddon actor has collected a huge music library, and is keen to leave it to his daughters: Rumer, Scout and Tallulah.
However, under iTunes’ current terms and conditions, customers essentially only ‘borrow’ tracks rather than owning them outright. This would leave Willis and any other iTunes users’ library of music, movies, books etc. worthless when they die.
Willis is considering setting up a trust for his tunes to get around the problem, but is “also backing legal moves to increase the rights of downloaders,” according to The Sun.
The Sun also got the views of London estate attorney Chris Walton, who stated: “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.”
