Apple Forbids Users from Using iTunes to Make Nuclear Bombs

| Cool Stuff Found

This has been a good day for the funnies: Jim Dalrymple noted at The Loop that Apple's end-user license agreement (EULA) for iTunes forbids people from using iTunes to make nuclear bombs.  Seriously, and you agreed to this when you clicked "I agree." Now what are you going to do, Evil Scientist™? The passage in question reads:

You also agree that you will not use these products for any purposes prohibited by United States law, including, without limitation, the development, design, manufacture or production of nuclear, missiles, or chemical or biological weapons.

That's pretty darned funny. (Thanks to TMO member mrmwebmax for the heads up.)

It’s not only in MacOS X, it will be in most software you buy. Imagine someone in North Korea uses a Mac to develop nuclear weapons. Apple can point out “not our fault, it’s totally against the license that they had to accept”. Otherwise someone will sue Apple. And imagine someone in North Korea used iTunes to listen to music while developing nuclear weapons (or used iTunes to handle training videos, which is a real possibility), again someone would sue Apple.
