Apple launches EU iTunes Music Store

“Apple today launched a European Union version of its revolutionary iTunes Music Store, giving music fans in Austria, Belgium, Finland, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal and Spain the same innovative features and breakthrough price of €0.99 per song that have made iTunes the number one online music service in the world. With Apple’s legendary ease of use, pioneering features such as iMix playlist sharing, seamless integration with iPod and groundbreaking personal use rights, the iTunes Music Store is the best way for PC and Mac users to legally discover, purchase and download music online. Apple today also announced it will launch the iTunes Music Store in Canada in November.”

Apple’s excuse for charging more for songs in the UK is further exposed as corporate fraud.
The EU should get a move on and take them to court ASAP.
Apple do you hear me? I just refuse to buy any song from you until the price comes down to the fair price or you comply with EU trade laws and let me buy from the EU store.

Surely if we now have an EU store, we put upon brits should legally be able to buy from it (and at a fairer price) as my billing address will be in the EU?
I’m with you until this happens Chris! No more buying from the UK iTMS until then. But i will make a point of only downloading the free tune every week, and should try and get everyone else to do that too!!

As long as there are retards voting against the Euro there won’t be a iTMS in Sweden. Only EU countries that have the Euro got it. The Finns must be laughing like crazy now.
