Reports that Bruce Willis is set to battle Apple over ownership of his digital music library are unfounded, according to the Hollywood actor’s wife.
The Daily Mail, along with a number of other publications, yesterday said that Willis was considering taking legal action against Apple in an attempt to battle the tech giant's ‘borrowing under licence’ rule.
The restriction means that music bought through iTunes shouldn’t be shared, with Apple reserving the right to freeze the iTunes accounts of those it believes to be passing on music to others. Wilis, however, was said to want to leave 'thousands of dollars worth' of downloaded music to his daughters in his will.
The actor’s wife tweeted yesterday, however, that the story wasn’t true.
The story has rekindled the long-standing debate over ownership of digital content and its potentially problematic nature.
