Bruce Willis v Apple

His latest battle, however, takes him to the considerably quieter world of the courtroom – although he still faces a formidable opponent.
The Hollywood action hero is said to be considering legal action against technology giant Apple over his desire to leave his digital music collection to his daughters.
If he succeeds, he could benefit not just himself and his family but the millions who have purchased songs from Apple’s iTunes Store.
Willis has discovered that, like anyone who has bought music online, he does not actually own the tracks but is instead ‘borrowing’ them under a licence. Most purchasers do not bother to read the details of the terms and conditions they agree to when buying an album, but the small print makes it clear that music bought through iTunes should not be passed on to others.
Since Willis – who occasionally sings with a blues band and has appeared in a video for Damon Albarn’s band Gorillaz – has apparently spent thousands of dollars downloading music on to "many, many iPods", he is keen to be able to hand it on legitimately to daughters Rumer, Scout and Tallulah.
One approach he is reportedly considering is to ask his legal team to establish family trusts as the "holders" of his downloaded music. Another option is to support ongoing legal action in five US states to give downloaders more rights to do what they want with their music.
