Boing Boing has this fascinating discussion on the legal ramifications of using an iPod or other hard drive player as a vehicle for DJs to distribute their music (originating from a story in the Philadelphia City Paper, "In iPod He Trusts;" love all the follow ups about the bloodlessness of absentee DJing). Sellers and purchasers of hard drive-based stereo components with pre-loaded music collections (scroll down a bit) must face similar concerns, although presumably these things couldn't be marketed without some form of front end licensing. More interesting reading: "Music Licensing Paying The Piper;" "Guide to Licensing Your Mix CD."
