Over the weekend, reports from The Sun and the Daily Mail claimed that actor Bruce Willis was considering taking legal action against Apple. The legal action was supposedly was regarding a transferability of iTunes Store music purchases. According to the report, Willis wanted his daughters to be able to inherit his iTunes music upon his death, but Apple’s terms prohibit any transfer of ownership.
Willis was apparently upset when he learned that he doesn’t own the tracks he buys online, but instead is borrowing them under a license, which was said to have led him to consider a lawsuit against Apple. Willis was originally said to be considered supporting ongoing legal action in five U.S. states, in which users are hoping to expand their rights with respect to digital music.
However, after the story began gaining attention, the actor’s wife, Emma Hemming-Willis, denied the rumor via Twitter. “It’s not a true story,” she said.
