I suspect the big worry is transfer of content between users. They want
to make sure that if you've downloaded an appli or ringtone or whatever,
you can't give it to your friends. Content providers, especially in
the popular media biz (pop music, movies, etc.) tend to be extremely
paranoid about sharing of their content.
