Using iTunes Means You Are Agreeing Not To Design Or Manufacture Weapons Of Mass Destruction

When you install new software on your computer or other gadget how many times have you actually taken time to read the terms of service or end user license agreement?

I bet you never!

You probably do what everyone else on the planet does and scroll to the bottom, tick the accept box and continue onwards to using the software.


The Loop has discovered something pretty funny with the iTunes End User License Agreement today and that is when you are using iTunes you agree not to design or manufacture nuclear missiles or other weapons of mass destruction.

Take a look at the quoted section we are referring to below:

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.

If you analyze the segment you will realize that it is perfectly fine to create weapons of mass destruction using other software, but with iTunes you are not allowed to.

How you actually would go about designing such weapons with jukebox software is beyond me, but in the movie Eagle Eye the terrorists did end up using a musical cue to trigger the detonator, so maybe Apple just wants to cover themselves…

Or, could there be a hidden feature we are all not aware of?
