Temporary tunes: Bruce Willis to sue Apple over music ownership

Action movie legend Bruce Willis is taking Apple to court over his music collection. The actor wants his daughters to inherit several gigabytes of downloaded music after his death.

The actor wants to ensure that Rumer, Scout and Tallulah Willis become the next owners of their father’s music collection after he passes away.

But according to the tech giant’s rules, ownership of his tunes will return to Apple, as they are in fact borrowed, not than owned.

Downloading music through iTunes doesn’t actually buy the music, which means it can’t be given to someone else or resold.

“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,” solicitor Chris Walton told the Daily Mail. “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.”

The 57-years old actor spent a significant amount of money on his collection, including classics the likes of Led Zeppelin.

If the issue reaches court, other users of Apple’s music services could also benefit.
