iTunes account gets hacked. Credit card company notes the activity and initiates a dispute with Apple.
"This is where it gets really nasty. Apple closed the compromised iTunes account and de-authorised all his purchases – not only the ones the fraudster grabbed, but everything he had bought over a period of 6 years."
The user ended up giving up without getting a resolution. They'd upgraded much of their material to the non-DRM version through iTunes Plus and after hitting one too many roadblocks decided it wasn't worth pursuing getting the rest of their paid for media released. Just goes to reinforce my practice of not buying any thing that I don't fully own. I've never purchased from iTunes and 99% of my on-line music purchases have been through Amazon's music store.
