Insurance for your iPod Files

Well, this has been too long in coming, but I'm glad to see it offered now. Nationwide Insurance is now offering coverage for "intangible assets" such as all the music stored on your iPod. This could've come in handy for my son, who has lost his entire music collection...twice! "Nationwide's cover is for any download - ringtones, games, films or music - wherever it is held, be that a phone, PC, laptop or music player. The important point is that the owner will have to prove they have paid for the download."

While proof may be a little problematic for some, I wonder if iTunes will at least provide a purchase history list upon request, since they DO keep that info.
