Apple Seeking Expanded Access to iTunes Downloads Across All iOS Devices
Apple is said to be actively engaged in negotiations with four major record labels to give iOS device users something they desperately want - expanded access to their digital music across all of their iOS devices. As a result, progress is apparently being made, the eventual outcome of which could be a new agreement between Apple and its largest digital music providers by the middle of 2011.
According to Bloomberg News, multiple sources familiar with the ongoing negotiations suggest that Apple is heavily lobbying the likes of Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, EMI Music and Warner Music Group to expand their current licensing agreement. Such an arrangement would effectively give iTunes consumers and iOS device users more control and flexibility in accessing their paid-for digital music libraries.
Although Apple and its major label partners aren't formally offering comment on the matter, there could very well be more on the table besides simply granting users access to the same iTunes account across the iPhone, iPod and iPad. It appears that a forthcoming deal could also provide for "permanent backup of music purchases" should the original files somehow become deleted or otherwise damaged and rendered unusable.

I'm guessing that has something to do with the cloud based services that we had heard about.Common Sense Its Not So Common

After watching MTV cribs for the first time I feel pretty damn good about downloading music free, now for apps and tweaks in Cydia, I to have xsellize and ********** but I use it for testing ****, I know many of u have bought a tweak and didn't like. Most of my apps from ********** I try it out if I like I buy cuz I would hate to spend $.99 or $4.99 ect for something that I will delete after using it the first time. But the music crap, u bet ur *** I'm torrenting, I'm not gonna pay for a song that will eventually get deleted after the song is played out

Yea, I have to agree. These artist are defiantly not hurting from people downloading music for free. What about back in the day when you use to record your favorite songs from the radio onto a cassette tape? Have you gone back and given that artist money? Have you ever seen two movies when you only paid for one?

You can justify it it however you want, it is still theft to download music off torrents. Do artists find other ways to make money? Sure they do.
Stealing a dollar from a millionaire is exactly the same as stealing from a guy with ten bucks, no matter how you try to spin it.
