iTunes for Canada
Apple is expected to launch its iTunes Music Store for Canada in the next several days. The Globe and Mail says that Apple has confirmed an November launch of the music service: "The expansion of iTunes into the Canadian market will mean stiff competition for the three existing music services and it could help make a dent in the free file-sharing now plaguing the music industry. Currently, Canadians can download music tracks from Napster.ca (a reconstituted legal version of the old free file-sharing service), Archambault.ca (owned by Quebecor Media Inc., and heavy on French-language music), and Puretracks.com (the first Canadian on-line music store, started last year by Toronto's Moontaxi Media Inc.)."
