Summary of Changes to Apple iTunes Terms

I keep my own copies of terms, privacy policies, etc. Tonight I compared the 2013 Apple iTunes Terms of Service [1] with 2014 [2]. Here’s a summary. (Googling returned no results of anyone else talking about this.) I’m not going to waste time commenting on any of this. Here are bullet items. Look at the terms for yourself to see details, and make up your own mind about what to thing.
