Apple prohibits creating a nuclear bomb with iTunes

Normally, under the conditions of use of a service we will expect that something as obvious as its operation be specified. But Apple wanted to go one step further and wanted to detail in the conditions of iTunes that You cannot use this code to create a nuclear bomb. It may seem something totally crazy and invented but if we start reading the conditions of use of this Apple service we find this clause that is certainly quite funny.

In the iTunes license agreement you can find herein the sectionor ‘END USER APPLICATION LICENSE AGREEMENT‘, At point g we can read the following text almost at the end:

You also agree not to use these products for any purpose prohibited by US law, including, without limitation, to develop, design, manufacture or produce nuclear, chemical or biological weapons or missile launchers.

In the rest of the point, quite normal things are specified, such as iTunes It can only be used in those countries where it is authorized and is not subject to embargo. Obviously, many of us wonder … Can you create a military weapon from the iTunes code? It is obvious that it would be necessary to be Mcgiver to achieve it, but Apple puts this simple clause in order to fully cover its backs in the legal aspect in the face of what a terrorist can do with his services. In this way we must bear in mind that we cannot use this code to create any nuclear weapon.

No doubt this is a simple anecdote of general culture about the company. Many of you would know that this point existed and you have all accepted it. This is where the importance of reading this type of legal documents comes in (although it is practically impossible) since they can strain some very controversial points and we accept blindly. For you to see, to use iTunes we had to commit not to use it to create a nuclear, biological or chemical weapon. That this can be tremendously absurd for some but there is in the agreement that we have signed with our initial consent.

And you, have you read Apple’s iTunes agreement? Leave us your impressions in the comment box.
