The lucky downloader was Alex Ostrovsky who hails from West Bloomfield in Michigan, USA. In return for being the one-billionth downloader, he has got a 20-inch iMac, 10 iPods (fifth generation) and a $10,000 gift card good, which allows him to purchase any item on the shopping list at the iTunes Music store. Also, a scholarship will be offered for a Juilliard School of Music entrÉe, which will be named after the one-billionth downloader. The chief of the company, Steve Jobs, said that in regularizing the legal download of music they have made strong step in the fight against Internet piracy.
