    Well... that leaves me out:rolleyes:

    Since you're from England, does that mean you're allowed to make nuclear weapons from iTunes?

    I love that. It's been there for years and we've all been agreeing to it every time we update iTunes.

    I've seen that in a lot of EULAs. Pretty standard stuff, though it's really thrown a wrench into my plans for constructing a fleet of nuclear missiles and taking over the world.

    You can check the iTunes Store Terms and Conditions, and regardless of country, you are forbidden to use iTunes as a means to violate US law.

    Now, I can't think of a hypothetical situation in which I would be using iTunes in a manner that is considered illegal by US law, but legal under Canadian law, but should I find myself in that scenario, I would be subject to Canadian law. I cannot be tried by the US legal industry as I am not a US citizen nor am I situated within US borders. US prosecutors could apply for an extradition order if my activity was somehow adversely affecting someone or something in US.

    My point is, I suppose, that including such information in the terms and conditions is rather pointless because actual laws nullify the significance of these conditions. It is clearly in there to absolve them of any accountability just in case someone rents Fight Club and hears;

    Or in more likely scenarios; it provides a legal spacer between Apple and media in the store that encourages drinking and driving, shooting police officers, etc. Stuff like that.

    No... Does anyone? It's complete common sense. If it's open source and you republish it, you have to give credit and open source your code. If it's not, don't modify it, redistribute it, or use it for anything but it's intended purpose. I read the whole GPL one day, and that solved me reading most things for a while. ;)
