Are you a fan of the band U2? If so, you’re probably delighted that they have teamed up with Apple to place their new album in your iTunes account for free. But if you’re not a fan, you might be wishing there was a way to get rid of it.
I’m a big fan of “free stuff”, but placing any type of content in someone’s account without first asking for permission is a bit presumptuous in my opinion.
Apple seems to have been caught off guard by all the criticism this ostensibly benevolent move has drawn, and they have responded by publishing a page with simple instructions for removing the offending album your iTunes account.
Note to U2 and Apple: We appreciate your generosity, but it might be a good thing to ask for permission in advance next time.
