Music boss: iPod owners are thieves

'Repositories for stolen music'

Universal Music CEO Doug Morris has implied that iPod owners are thieves.

Morris was discussing Microsoft's recent attempt to buy its way into the music industry by paying a $1-per-unit royalty on Zune players sold.

The music boss revealed that he had insisted on such a royalty in order to include Universal's music catalogue on the Zune marketplace.

"These devices are just repositories for stolen music, and they all know it," Morris said. "It's time to get paid for it," he added, according to Billboard.com.
