I should hope that building demolition applications would be posted here and worked on in an open source community so that the next time a contractor is granted a permit to demolish an uninhabitable, decrepit, and/or condemned building; they do the planning on a mac and get it right instead of anyone getting hurt.
Yes, the unconstitutional law is that you cannot link to which circumvents ; however, there is a legitimate use for this product. As a federal judge has ruled that 'filesharing services' have legitimate uses (conflicting ruling was issued the same day or the next EST), it can only be assumed that this software is legal to use only if you either a) live outside of the United States or b) believe in the rights enshrined in the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
I noticed that I could only download this from one sf mirror, but when I tried to dl itunesDL from the link at macupdate it worked instantly. It seems that MU believes in the rights that individuals should have. I do not pirate music. I will not label everyone who does as a criminal. If I record something and want to share it then that is generally legal. Will videotapes or weddings be banned from iDVD's because they may contain 'here comes the bride' which in another year may have a (read this word and think about how often it has been ignored) "RETROACTIVE" copyright extension to a new 'anonymous non-existent or unknown legal entity" (ANUL or $ANUALLY) until the governments of all the world nations vote to remove the protection?
Apple's stock is not going to go much above the point it is at until after WWDC, if that's what you're worried about. The Major labels know that most of the things in the Apple catalog are available online for free already. The Major labels also know that most of the popular music they have placed on cds instead of optical disks which may or may not play in your player because of 'protection' is already out there. With a 3 or 5 share limit, itunes will not become a massive source/client of audio (legal or illegal) re-distribution. This will no effect the renewal of contracts or expansion into windows world; if that is what you are worried about.
This is a very useful utility which allows me to sync my machines at work or home whenever I add legally purchased or owned music to either machine so that when I go to any of them with my ipod I can autosync and not have to hack past any protection.
Transfering music files by any method including sneakernet is not illegal, immoral, or wrong provided you have the 'right' to use those files and believe in the system which grants or withholds those 'rights'
Nice economy we have here with everyone afraid to produce anything because they might include some code which could be construed to have been backwards reverse engineered through interception of brain waves and is therefore defacto pattented and illegal unless you make large political bribes or belong to the old boy network (in which case you won't even know what a mac is).
