Precisely, we just buy the music's usage right from iTunes, not the right of the ownship...

A good iTunes DRM removal program.

It was always my understanding (from selling computer software) you were able to make copies of the original disc to preserve it's integrity and use the copies for installs and backup as necessary. That doesn't quite work with electronically downloaded content but similar rules should apply.

On another note, down under we have a very unusual ruling in our copyright act (law 100 IIRC) which states if you hire a disc (movie, music, etc.) then you have the right to keep a copy of it to allow you to watch it at a later date/time should you choose. Of course, once you have watched/listened to it you do need to delete it from your systems. )

Cheers,
You will find that is no longer the case as the government agreed to the US copyright laws last year.

jdent02 Sort of. As I understand it you are allowed to make a personal backup, so long as you don't break any copyright protection to do it. That's why any programs that remove drm or macrovision are illegal. Doesn't matter if you just want a personal backup or not.

I thought something was not right about that rumor since in iTunes it allows burn to disc how would they reclaim those?

Nope. It used to be that way but then the digital millennium copyright act was passed.
Great. I am not aware of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Will have to google it to see what it means. Thanks.

True. Even thou Bruce is not doing anything.... The real issue is that "single license" which 99% of the folks buying dvds/cds/itunes, etc. do not realize.. Most people if not all think the copy they bought is theirs but in reality it is not..

jdent02 It plays into a problem that is still kinda underground but becoming more prominent lately, i.e. just how much control you have over content you have legally purchased. Even with cd's and dvd's you don't actually 'own' anything. You've essentially purchased a single use license to view someone else's property. This is why its still technically illegal for you to make backups of your movie collection. News outlets probably latched onto it because Bruce Willis is a hip actor.
