I live in the UK, with a UK passport, payment card and address.

 

I have family on a working VISA in Australia. They have an Australian card and current address but they are UK nationals.

 

There is some music I'd like on the Australian iTunes. If she was to buy the songs, could she send them to me on disk which I could then put

Into my library?

    but they are UK nationals.

    The legal notice on the iTunes Australia Store states:

     

    "The iTunes Service is available to you only in Australia, its territories, and possessions. You agree not to use or attempt to use the iTunes Service from outside these locations. Apple may use technologies to verify your compliance."

     

    There is not a citizenship requirement, so the fact that they are UK nationals is not relevant.

     

    I think you can figure out the rest.

    If she was to buy the songs, could she send them to me on disk which I could then put into my library?

     

    That would be illegal unless she then deleted the tracks and never downloaded them again, and a violation of the iTunes Store terms of sale in any case. If you want music from Australia, ask your family to buy the CDs and ship them to you.

     

    Regards.

    Thanks for the replies.

     

    Unfortunately I cannot buy the physical copy as its no longer manufactured. I've been trying for years to locate a website which sells this album and there are literally no psysical disks around. Any sites I've found for digital purchase link back to Australian iTunes. It's my only option :-(

    All we can tell you is what you ask would be against the terms of the iTunes Store, and again could be a violation of copyright laws as well.
