Apple iTunes Music Store Europe Opens

June 15th, 2004 No comments

Went to the Apple iTMS – it was empty.

So Apple have finally got round to opening in the UK, but where are all the tracks? 700,000 may sound a lot, but not when it’s full of dross from bands no-one’s ever heard of. Several artists are listed, but with no tracks, or a single obscure track. Where’s Madonna, Rolling Stones, Elvis Presley?

According to The Register, several record labels are holding out. Do these labels really prefer people to copy/download illegal CDs or are they going to realise that the rip-off years are over, and get with the future of music publishing.

We’ll see what happens in the next few weeks. At least it’s here now.
