Digital money: like real money, just trickier

Fabulous piece of writing on the The Register today:

Now that all the world’s injustices have been resolved, peace and harmony reign throughout the land, and the lion has lain down with the lamb, a US court has been asked to resolve the last remaining inequity still disturbing our perfected existence

What could that possibly be?  Middle East peace?  Who Madonna’s dating?  Whether Obama has stopped covering up the grey in his hair?

Nope, it’s whether Apple has misrepresented the price of music on its gift cards.  To read the story see: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/06/26/apple_gift_card_lawsuit/

Gift cards, e-wallets and all sorts of other clever ways to store and use money in consumer businesses are tricky stuff from a legal perspective – best to get it checked out eh!
