Indie labels a no-show for iTunes Europe launch?

“A source from within the UK’s Association of Independent Musicians (AIM) explained: “Talks have been ongoing over the weekend, but I’m hearing they broke down today.” It appears Apple has presented terms to Europe’s independents that are unacceptable to them, and the computer company is not prepared to shift its position.
