Bruce Willis is preparing to take Apple to court over who owns his huge digital music collection after he dies.
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.”

Already put them there earlier in the week. What a joke. Might have to check my Amazon account to make sure they don't have the same policy.

Wow, Apple is whack. But then, Willis isn't too bright here either. This is why I still buy CD's. I rip them to my iTunes and subsequently put them on my iPod for convenience. But it's rare that I plug my iPod into my car, usually I'm still loading the 6-disc CD changer in the dash.

People rarely seem to agree with the "terms and conditions" yet continue to click "agree".

Reminds me of that South Park episode.

FYI...this is now being referred to as just a rumor.
