New iTunes terms confirm: no iTunes Extras, LP on iPad

Apple has updated its iTunes Store Terms & Conditions ahead of the iPad’s launch, revealing a few minor details about the device’s functionality. Most notably, and despite reports indicating that the formats were developed with the iPad in mind, the initial iPad software will not offer support for iTunes Extras or iTunes LP content. The new terms state, “iTunes LP and iTunes Extras Products are usable only on computers with iTunes 9 or higher and Apple TV with software version 3.0 or higher,” adding that if the user purchases a album or movie that includes such content, it won’t be downloaded to the iPad, but instead will be placed in the user’s download queue for later downloading via iTunes. In addition, the terms also state that movies rented using the iPad may not be moved from the device, mirroring the behavior of movies rented on the Apple TV.
