It has been made public in a lawsuit that Apple deleted music from users devices if the music was downloaded from a rival.  It is claimed that this occured in 2007 - 2009.

 

Apple are breaching users rights because recently they downloaded a U2 album to many unsuspecting users and then made it difficult for it to be deleted.

 

If the music has been purchased from a rival then Apple have no right to delete it. What next - they'll delete apps that are not made by Apple?

I actually read about this on the BBC web pages last night. I thought then, what a damn liberty.

Surely anything you download on a device that belongs to you has absolutely nothing to do with Apple Smiley Mad
