iTunes No. 1 in Germany

Apple's iTunes is the No. 1 music service in Germany, according to the Financial Times. Departing from its usual reveal its German sales figures, Macworld reports that Apple sold over 15.5 million songs in 2005: "The sales put it narrowly ahead of closest competitor, Musicload (operated by T-Online, a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom). T-Online rejected Apple's claims, citing 15 million song sales of its own. However, 1.5 per cent of those sales were given away free of charge, while Apple says free song downloads don't count toward its figures."
