    Do you guys think Apple will ever allow you to share music , apps and such that have been bought in the iTunes store with another iDevice user?

    No, because that would be pirating.

    According to the music industry, if you did that then the person you are sharing with just stole their property. Classifying them as a pirate. That is outside of fair use.

    You can already do this (maybe i shouldn't assume people know what app sharing is when i list it as a benefit). As long as that person who bought the app (or media) authorizes your computer that has your itunes library. Each person (itunes account) can authorize up to 5 computers.

    Zune would allow you to share a song with someone else that would expire after 3 plays or something like that. I don't know if it still does that or not, but the fact that it could work that way shows that the RIAA allowed it for some reason.

    Then again, the Zune is irrelevant.

    and see thats a bit messed up. The song was already bought. You are not selling it to them. Its like inviting them over and playing the song.

    It's nothing like inviting them over and playing the song. It's like copying it and giving it to them. No wait. It's not like that, it is that exactly.

    It's like software, you don't get to copy it and give it to friends to use on their pc's. Why should you be able to do that with music?

    I'm with cardfanmy girlfriend and I are constantly sharing apps bought in iTunes via home sharing. I pay, we both use it, and it's built into iTunes.

    Are you meaning something different?
