I didn't look at the entry form, but they might just bind it to your iTunes account automatically.  No card, just an instant $10,000.

Thats only around 10000 songs or so. A true music snob would use that up in about a month.

@Gunner: Since iTunes charges $1.29 per song now, it's only 7751.93798 songs. Not even worth it.

@AjayRaz: I know! It's ridiculous! The person that gets the 10 billionth download and should win the promo is going to lose to some guy who filled out the free entry form. :P

I just filled out the entry form. I'm gonna use that card on a bunch of iPad apps. Or maybe to throw my service provider when they think I'm pirating music when I'm really not.

No, it isn't legal in Sweden. Where'd you get that from? The Pirate Bay still exists because it isn't based in Sweden.

Seems your right.......
It's kinda muddled, but after looking for some more recent info it seems that MUSIC is legal to download through p2p in canada, Copyrighted Video & Software are illegal.
Though Uploading music is something of a grey area.
