iTunes Store Terms and Conditions have Changed

Periodically, the iTunes Store will have an updated Terms and Conditions to which you must agree before making any purchases. It annoys me to no end that they do not provide a summary of what has changed, so I've started using the "Email terms" feature to save copies for later comparison.

On March 22nd, 2010, the terms and conditions changed again. I'm only looking at the Canadian version, but I imagine the changes are similar no matter where you are. The changes are mostly fixing typos and spacing, but the meat of this update has to do with "GIFTS":

Old:

Gifts purchased from the iTunes Store in Canada may be purchased only for, and redeemed only by, residents of Canada. Gifts are non-refundable. Gifts may not be purchased with iTunes Cards, Gift Certificates or Allowance Accounts. Gifts may not be used for Movie Rentals or Apps.

New:

Gifts purchased from the iTunes Store in Canada may be purchased only for, and redeemed only by, persons in Canada. Gifts are non-refundable. Gifts may not be purchased with iTunes Cards, Gift Certificates or Allowance Accounts. Gifts may not be used for Movie Rentals, In-App Purchases, Upgrades, or the iPod touch OS. Gift recipients must have compatible hardware and parental control settings to utilize some gifts.

And one new section:

16. GIFTS. Gifts purchased from the Service in Canada may be purchased only for, and redeemed only by, persons in Canada. Gifts are non-refundable. Gifts may not be used for In App Purchases, Upgrades, or the iPod touch OS. Gift recipients must have compatible hardware and parental control settings to utilize some gifts.

Not a whole lot of interesting stuff there, but one thing to note is their mention of "upgrades" in the context that gifts are not valid for them. Developers have not yet been able to charge for upgrades, so perhaps this is an indication that such a feature is on its way.
