iTunes license agreement

Another of my ancient, random posts. Not sure where I found this, but I don't think it was from one of the usual sites (Slashdot, BoingBoing, etc). I think I actually found it on my own (tho is had apparently been pretty widely reported before I found it).


So it would seem that using iTunes to manufacture a missile or nuke is verboten. Shit. *Now* what am I supposed to use??
