European iTunes Music Stores sell 200 million songs

Apple today announced that more than 200 million songs have been purchased and downloaded from its European iTunes Music Stores in just over two years. The company also said that its European music catalog now includes more than 3 million songs. The iTunes Music Store was launched in the UK, France and Germany in June 2004, and now operates in 17 European countries. “The number of songs downloaded and purchased from the iTunes Music Stores in Europe have tripled in the past year from 50 million to 200 million,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president of iTunes. “We’re thrilled that music fans in Europe have shown such enthusiasm for the artists and exclusive music content found only on iTunes and would like to thank them for making iTunes such a success.”
