Jobs hopes iTMS for Europe early 2004

In a MacNN reader report, Steve Jobs was interviewed on the French TV show during the Apple Expo in Paris.

When will you bring the iTMS to Europe? First priority for us is to make it available to Windows users in the USA and this will happen before the end of the year! But, we are really commited to bringing iTMS to Europe as soon as ... yesterday if we could ... but the European music licensing market is very complicated. A song might be distributed by one company in the UK and a different one in France, and then another one in Germany! So we have been trying to sort thru all of that for several months already and .. we hope that early next year we will be able to offer iTMS to European users, both MAC and Windows!”

Hmmm - I’m a little confused. Obviously I’d like to see iTunes Music Store in the UK, but what does Jobs mean when he says he wants to bring it to *US* windows users first?

When it is made available to windows users in the states, will we be able to use it in the UK to manage our iPods? Is iTunes and iTunes Music Store two different things?

this means getting iTunes on the Windows platform has a higher priority and getting ITMS in europe will be done right after that.
