Apple has separate iTunes stores for many countries. When you purchase a song from the Japan iTunes store, one must agree to its Terms of Service, which specifically states that all sales are for Japan only. Some argue that this is merely a policy, stating that buying/downloading iTunes music from Japan while being outside of it breaks no laws with no threat of legal action since the artist/songwriter of the song, the artist's record company, and the Japan iTunes store all get paid. Isn't this a breach of a legally binding contract? Shouldn't this be considered copyright infringement and/or smuggling? I need help explaining why this is illegal and I realize that there are many things going on with these questions, including international law. I thank you in advance for your replies.
