iTunes is a media player, media library, online radio broadcaster, and mobile device management application developed by Apple Inc. It is used to play, download, and organize digital audio and video (as well as other types of media available on the iTunes Store) on personal computers running the OS X and Microsoft Windows operating systems. The iTunes Store is also available on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. In the iTunes Store, users can purchase and download music, music videos, television shows, audiobooks, podcasts, movies, and movie rentals in some countries, and ringtones, available on the iPhone and iPod Touch.
The government legalised copying for private use in 2014, a practice most thought was already legal. This meant copying of music from a CD to an MP3 player – something that is not only possible on iTunes but, at least when it first appeared, was its principal function along with buying from the platform. “As this is a complex area of law, the Government is carefully considering the implications of the ruling and the available options, before deciding any future course of action,” a government spokesperson said.
The reality was that iTunes was never illegal and the law was misinterpreted. But I strongly believe that iTunes is one of the best platforms to buy music and media files without breaking the copyright laws and also not stealing them from the internet.
