Bruce Willis Challenging Apple Over iTunes Ownership

Bruce Willis is apparently a DieHard iTunes fan, so much so that he has invested thousands of dollars in downloads. However, his Sixth Sense tells him that Apple's rule that iTunes customers get only a license, not ownership of their tunes, is unacceptable, and he's apparently willing to take on the corporate giant in court. Will Mr. Willis go the Whole Nine Yards? Will he be the Last Man Standing after a legal Siege? What will the Verdict be?  All kidding aside, many iTunes customers probably do not realize that they are only purchasing a license to their favorite music. Mr. Willis, an extremely popular actor, is raising awareness of an issue that has in the past few years, caused a certain amount of concern and comment among lawyers and commentators.
