    Yes, they can. All they need to do is connect it up to a computer and synchronize it with their library. There's no restriction in that regard.

    Sorry to hear yours got stolen.

    The only thing you may be able to do is file it under your homeowners insurnace if the deductiable is not too high.

    I read somewhere that (rumor) Apple are planning to put security protection on the iPod's in the future to prevent people from using it that don't own the device.

    Think it was on Engadget, can't seem to find the article though.

    Yup, the article explained that the iPod could be "locked" to certain chargers. So if someone stole your iPod, they could only use it until the battery died.

    Which you would normally do, right?

    I agree, though, that this might not be desirable if mandatory. I think it would make a great optional feature though.
