Here is what you wrote.<br><br>"Actually, MacZ, the ad was to sell the song
. The ad was about favourite songs and said that you could "download yours for just 99 cents" ".<br><br>You quote the article thus:-<br>"the company used one of the rapper's songs—"Lose Yourself" from the 2002 film "8 Mile"—in an iTunes television commercial
"<br><br>Note that it does not claim that it's a commercial for the song "Lose Yourself"
, but a commercial for the iTunes Music Service
, and by featuring the performer using an iPod, demonstrates the link between ITMS and the iPod.<br><br>So you claim that the article proves your point, yet the piece you quote quite clearly proves you were mistaken and that MZ was correct.<br><br>And in case you missed it, here it is again...<br><br>You said:<br>Actually, MacZ, the ad was to sell the song.
<br>It clearly was not to sell the song. As you so gleefully point out, it was to sell the ITMS. If you can show how that is the same as an ad for Eminem's "Lose Yourself", then you are indeed a gifted soul.
<br><br>Perhaps we are talking at cross-purposes here but you seem to be denying the obvious - Apple were not advertising Eminem's music. They were using Eminem's music to sell Apple.<br><br>An entirely different thing.<br><br>Moo?
