Hollywood actor Bruce Willis is reportedly preparing to take Apple to court over the rights to his iTunes collection.

Willis apparently wants to leave his 'huge' collection of digital music to his three daughters after he dies, but according to Apple's terms and conditions of sale, users actually only 'borrow' the music they buy on iTunes, meaning that they no longer own them upon their death.

The Sun reports that the actor has now seen advisors in order to set up a trust to hold his digital music collection, so there is more hope that it can be passed on to Rumer, Scout and Tallulah Willis when he dies.

Willis is backing other legal moves which will increase the rights of music downloaders.

Meanwhile, Apple are currently staging the iTunes Festival in London at the Roundhouse venue.
