Fifty-seven years old action super star Bruce Willis is preparing for real life action. Willis wants to legally hand down his vast digital music collection on iTunes to his daughters – Rumer, Scout and Tallulah – upon his death. But iTunes’ current terms and conditions doesn’t support any kind of legal handover. Therefore, Willis is “preparing to take Apple to court.”

Bruce Willis wants that after his death, his three daughters Rumer (24 years), Scout (20 years) and Tallulah (18 years) inherit their father’s extensive music collection. But, iTunes’ terms and conditions of its downloading contract clearly state that music bought through the site cannot be passed to anyone else, no matter if they are a relation or not. It means, when someone “buys” a track, book or movie from iTunes, he/she is not actually purchasing it — rather he/she is purchasing/leasing the rights to view or listen to it. Therefore, any music library stored in iTunes will become worthless when the owner dies. Here is the relevant excerpt from the “Scope of License” section :

This license does not allow you to use the Licensed Application on any Apple Device that you do not own or control, and except as provided in the Usage Rules, you may not distribute or make the Licensed Application available over a network where it could be used by multiple devices at the same time. This license does not allow you to use the Licensed Application on any Apple Device that you do not own or control, and except as provided in the Usage Rules, you may not distribute or make the Licensed Application available over a network where it could be used by multiple devices at the same time.

Every Apple user including Willis agrees to these rules when they buy music from iTunes. And, iTunes has the power to freeze people’s accounts if it suspect that the users are sharing the tunes/music with others. It is illegal. But Bruce Willis wants to change the condition.

Willis’ solicitor Chris Walton, an estate specialist at Irwin Mitchell, has shared an interesting information. He told Daily Mail, “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.”

It’s time to see, will Willis be able to force iTunes to change its terms and conditions? We’ll continue the story as soon as we get any update. Till then stay with us. In the mean time, you can share your thoughts about Bruce Willis’ desire with us.

Update :  Apparently the news of Bruce Willis suing Apple was false. Bruce’s wife Emma Hemming-Willis confirmed this on a tweet. The clarifying tweet says, “it’s not a true story” and directed @RichieD_. Moreover, Bruce bought the songs on iTunes after knowing and agreeing to the service’s’ terms and conditions. Denying it now would be an act of foolishness.
