When You Use iTunes, You Agree Not To Design & Develop Nuclear Weapons

Often times when you install a new piece of software on your Mac, you’re presented with a lengthy end user license agreement that you must agree to before you can use the application. You’re supposed to read it, but none of us ever do because they’re incredibly boring and long-winded.

But the iTunes end user license agreement gets particularly interesting towards the end, where it stipulates that you must agree not to design and develop nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons.

Seriously.

Here’s the snippet, which was spotted by The Loop:

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.

What I like most about this paragraph is that it specifically relates to iTunes; it’s not saying you shouldn’t develop these weapons at all — it’s saying you should not use “these products” (iTunes) to do it.

How on Earth would you ever be able to design, develop, and manufacture nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons using iTunes? Is there a feature I haven’t stumbled across?
