Bruce Willis to fight Apple over iTunes skank

Bruce Willis is eyeing a legal bid to ensure he can pass on his iTunes library to his children when he dies, according to the Daily Mail.

The Die Hard star is concerned that his extensive music collection will revert to Apple ownership on his demise and is looking into ways that might allow his three daughters, Rumer, Scout and Tallulah, to legitimately inherit it. His lawyers are currently said to be looking at the possibility of setting up "family trusts" to act as legal holders of the downloaded music, but Willis is also prepared to consider taking Apple to court over the issue.

"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 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."

Willis is also considering supporting legal action currently underway in five US states to give people more rights to share music they have purchased. The actor, a keen music lover and musician, who had a UK No 2 hit in 1987 with his cover version of the Drifters' Under the Boardwalk, reportedly owns thousands of hours' worth of music on various iPods.


Go Bruce. While it may seem quite a trivial thing for Mr Willis to worry about considering his income, and I'm guessing his kids are more worried about receiving his cash-money inheritance rather than his extensive Vengaboys collection, it's good to see someone standing up against the evil Apple corporation.

Bein a fan of a guy you can admit is attractive in a non-gay way is completely different from sayin "Let's all have an orgy usin multi-coloured strap-ons and flavoured condoms. Actually... Forget the condoms!" That'd be like sayin that callin a woman beautiful is perverted.

As usual with the British tabloid press it was all a load of bollocks.
