Report: iTunes Music Store coming to Japan in August

Apple will launch a version of its iTunes Music Store in Japan this August, a Japanese newspaper reported Tuesday. The Nihon Keizai business daily said that major Japanese record labels, including Columbia Music Entertainment, Avex Group Holdings and Toshiba-EMI, have agreed to provide songs for the service, but that Sony Music Entertainment has yet to agree on contract terms with Apple. The paper said Japanese users will be able to download songs for around 150 yen ($1.40).

When it says, “Japanese users will be able to download songs for around 150 yen..” does that mean that purchase from the Japanese iTune store will be limited to those in Japan?

Of course, purchase from the Japanese iTune store will be limited to those in Japan. That is the same in Europe, USA, etc.

However, Apple Japan denied giving an interview on the subject. It is either insider information or just another rumor.
