Apple to finally remove draconian music download limit? According to Bloomberg, Apple may finally be on the verge of removing their one-time-only download limits.
In the iTunes Store, the TOS reads:

Products may be downloaded only once and cannot be replaced if lost for any reason. Once a Product is downloaded, it is your responsibility not to lose, destroy, or damage it, and Apple shall not be liable to you if you do so.

Bloomberg says that limit may be removed, according to "three people with knowledge of the plans."

Apple is currently negotiating with UMG, SME, WMG and EMI.

The new agreement will give "iTunes customers a permanent backup of music purchases if the originals are damaged or lost."

Downloads will also be available via iOS devices, as long as those devices are linked to the same iTunes account.

Whaaaaaat? This wasn't in place before?

Christ, no wonder iHateApple.

Someone told me once that theres a right and wrong, and that punishment would come to those
who dare to cross the line.
But it must not be true for jerk-offs like you.
Maybe it takes longer to catch a total asshole.
