\'Red tape\' delays European iTunes Music Store

iTMS for Europe delayed

Red tape is of Apple's Internet music store iTunes, according to Reuters report: " A maze of licensing contracts, music release dates that differ by country and incompatible billing systems have combined to sidetrack the service, which many recording executives still hope will make its European debut in the first half of 2004. 'We will be here this year. I'm not going to announce the date at this time, but we are working very hard,' Eddy Cue, vice president of applications and Internet services for Apple, said at the annual MidemNet music conference on the French Riviera."

    music biz shoots self...

    again. Red Tape? Another word for shoddy government 'regulation' demanded by bloated and archaic industry that is attempting to outlast history.

    We do not need to profit control.
    No dark, stark hallway in the classroom.
    Regulators, leave the music industry alone!
    All in all they are just another brick in the wallŪ
