quite the license agreement

James Bow posts this screen capture of the iTunes user agreement, with the relevant point highlighted. It goes to show that we’ve gotten way too paranoid when it comes to liability and risk.


It's an accurate capture - here the apple pdf.

James goes on to say:

Okay, I’ll leave it up to you to decide what musician’s songs would represent an iTunes equivalent of “nuclear, chemical or biological weapons.”

For me, there was that time — do you remember — when some bright light at Major League Baseball got the idea of having Rosanne Barr sing the American national anthem before a large audience, and she did such a bad job it made national news.

This was in the early 1990s, as some commentators suggested dropping her on Iraq.
I would nominate William Hung trying to sing... or there was a the country singer who tried to sing O Canada at a CFL game when they expanded into the USA - I think it was in Las Vegas. He was as bad as Hung.
